Sparton Resources Inc announced that its subsidiary company, Yunnan Sparton Environtech Co Ltd (YSET) has executed a Letter of Intent and cooperation agreement with Lafarge Shui On (Beijing) Technical Services Co, Ltd (LSOC). LSOC is a Chinese based subsidiary of Lafarge.
Under the terms of the agreement, YSET will identify deposits of potentially recyclable waste with LSOC evaluating their suitability for use within the cement-making process. YSET’s initial waste ash reclamation work is at a pilot plant stage and has focussed on the Lincang area of Yunnan.

Lafarge has a number of operations in China, including 18 operating cement plants and grinding stations and one cement plant under construction in Yunnan Province. Both parties envision significant positive environmental benefits from this joint program.

Sparton President, Lee Barker, said: "Sparton is very pleased to be associated in this program with the Lafarge organisation. Lafarge’s strong position in Yunnan, and its support for the recycling and waste cleanup initiatives developed by YSET, will be extremely positive contributions to the program going forward."
