Wastes into production

A comprehensive study of the wastes from ozokerite production at the Borislavskoe deposit (L’vov oblast’, Ukraine) was performed. It was determined on the basis of data from x-ray phase, differential thermal and petrographic analyses as well as from the determination of the main physical and ceramic properties of the wastes and compositions in combination with additives such as secondary kaolin from the Murzinskoe deposit, primary alkaline kaolin from the Dubrovskoe deposit and fly ash from the Ladyzhinskaya TPP that these wastes can be used effectively in the batch to obtain construction ceramic. Introducing the wastes into the batch makes it possible to reduce their sensitivity to drying, intensify the molding process and reduce the consumption of the main heat carrier during firing.
