The possibility of synthesizing ceramic pigments using industrial wastes — nepheline sludge from the production of alumina, spent sulfovanadate diatomite (SVD) catalyst, and spent Ziegler – Natt catalyst—is studied. These materials will lower production costs of ceramic pigments. Nepheline sludge and spent catalysts make it possible to obtain on-glaze paints and ceramic pigments in the sand-color-brown-olive-green color range. The pigments synthesized are also recommended for volume coloring of ceramic pastes in the manufacture of construction materials.
