Wastes and Byproducts

  • W. B. Crandall
Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 8)


Ceramic products can often be made from raw materials taken directly from the earth without further refinement, requiring only mixing, forming and heat treating to produce a marketable item. The cost of these raw materials, used without modification, is small, and the market price of the products made from such unaltered raw materials is also relatively low. One would, therefore, conclude that a used (waste) low priced product of this type would find very little or no market, because it would have to compete with the new low priced product. Fortunately, this is not the case, and there is a place in the market for reprocessed ceramic products. Common bricks are a good example of a ceramic reused product of this type.
