New approach to mining Extracting glassmaking raw materials from food waste UpdatedNew approach to mining Extracting glassmaking raw materials from food waste Updated

The mission of mining schools is to research new and better ways of extracting useful raw materials to manufacture products. Usually, miners look into the earth for sources of valuable minerals. Researchers at the Colorado School of Mines, expanding the definition of mining, have discovered that the earth will deliver minerals to them in the form of agricultural byproducts. The food processing industry has a […]

Review. Functional glasses and glass-ceramics derived from iron rich waste and combination of industrial residuesReview. Functional glasses and glass-ceramics derived from iron rich waste and combination of industrial residues

Authors: R.K. Chinnam, A.A. Francis, J. Will, E. Bernardo, A.R. Boccaccini Source: Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids , 365:63–74 , 2013 Wastes from industrial processes and energy generation facilities pose environmental and health issues. Diversion of waste from landfill to favour reuse or recycling options and towards the fabrication of marketable products is of high economic and ecologic interest. Moreover safe recycling of industrialwastes is necessary and even vital to […]

Green building materials from industrial wastes Green building materials from industrial wastes

 OFFER Ref: 13 IT 56Z7 3S6A  An Italian SME has developed a production process which can reuse, after characterization and inertization, different kinds of industrial wastes in order to obtain building materials, such as paving blocks for external pavings or other building elements, with economic value. The company is looking for industrial partners for licence agreements and commercial agreement with technical assistance. Si desea obtener […]

Reuse of solid petroleum waste in the manufacture of porcelain stoneware tileReuse of solid petroleum waste in the manufacture of porcelain stoneware tile

Authors: B.C.A. Pinheiro, J.N.F. Holanda Source: Journal of Environmental Management , 118, 205-210 , 2013 This study investigates the incorporation of solid petroleum waste as raw material into a porcelain stoneware tile body, in replacement to natural kaolin material by up to 5 wt.%. Tile formulations containing solid petroleum waste were pressed and fired at 1240 °C by using a fast-firing cycle. The tile pieces were tested to determine […]

Fabrican ladrillos con residuos de papel

Fuente: Construnario Investigadores de la Universidad de Jaén han incorporado los residuos que genera una industria papelera al material cerámico que se usa en la construcción. El resultado son unos ladrillos con una baja conductividad térmica, por lo que actúan como buenos aislantes, aunque todavía hay que mejorar su resistencia mecánica. Más: Enlace

Possible use of waste olivine powders from a foundry process into the ceramic industry: Sintering behaviour of olivine, kaolin and their blendsPossible use of waste olivine powders from a foundry process into the ceramic industry: Sintering behaviour of olivine, kaolin and their blends

Autores: Furlani, E.|Tonello, G.|Aneggi, E.|Maschio, S. Fuente: Ceram. Int. , 39(2), 1257–1263 , 2013 The present basic research aims to evaluate the possible recycling of olivine, a by-product of a foundry process, into the ceramic industry. With this goal in mind, olivine powders (O) were milled alone or blended with 20, 40, 60 and 80 wt% of a high grade kaolin (K) by attrition milling to obtain powders of […]

Combining mineral and clay-based wastes to produce porcelain-like ceramics: An exploratory studyCombining mineral and clay-based wastes to produce porcelain-like ceramics: An exploratory study

Autores: Junkes, J.A.|Prates, P.B.|Hotza, D.|Segadaes, A.M. Fuente: Appl. clay sci. , 69, 50-57 , 2012 The present work was aimed at producing waste-only ceramics with higher added value, while finding a viable end-use, other than landfilling, for wastes from extraction and beneficiation of mineral resources. Based on their fluxing character and plasticity, four non-hazardous industrial wastes were selected and characterized: one clay mining tail, the sludge from potable water […]

The effect of incorporation of red mud on the properties of clay ceramic bodiesThe effect of incorporation of red mud on the properties of clay ceramic bodies
