The local Lafarge Balcones cement plant is benefiting from their decision not to burn waste derived fuel in their cement kilns According to information provided by Jim Schermbeck of Texans United in Dallas Home Depots in the Worth area were com pletely dependent on TXI Portland Cement which Schermbeck described as a toxictainted product Although they do not come right out and say that they have switched cement suppliers this is in fact what has said Schermbeck As of this weeks inspection of area stores no TXI products are being sold in many of the stores TXI Portland Cement has been replaced with a Lafarge product from New Braunfels Home Depot is the first hardware store chain to take such action and Lafarge is one of the first nonwastebuming cement plants to economi cally benefit from their decision an interesting development considering the last two or three years worth of battling on the issue In response to a press release issued by Texans United July 25 announcing that Home Depot had made a decision to stop selling toxic Home Depot sent Schermbeck a memo stating their corporate position on the issue which included the following information As of Sept 28 Home Depot does not sell any cement products that contain cement from kilns that burn hazardous wastederived fuel Home Depot has asked the EPA to answer specific questions regarding cement products On a casebycase basis suppliers that pur chase products from kilns that use wastederived fuel will be required to supply independent third party assurances from a recognized scientific certification agency All decisions made in the future will be based on the EPAs official position regarding the product and the independent evaluation specified A Home Depot memo to cement products ven dors dated June 28 upon which Texans United had based their press release stated The Home Depot has decided to implement a policy of not selling cement products produced with hazardous wastederived fiiel This policy decision has been made after a very careful analysis of the Locally Hal Bartlett manager of Lafarges Balcones Plant noted that Home Depot is still reviewing the issue Certainly its good said Burtlett Its an additional market for us but when they review it they may find theres no Bartlett said Lafarge still considers the use of wastederived fuels a safe and valuable alternative however the Balcones plant is not burning haz ardous waste nor do we intend Texans United is an organization working to improve the environment and the economy of A new champion Freiheit Country Store judged winner of annual
