Utilization of Waste Marble Powder Dust in Manufacturing of Bricks
Keywords:eco-construction bricks, marble sludge powder, cement, environment, waste reuse
Marble waste, in the form of sludge obtained from the marble cutting industry, was incorporated in the mixture formulations of concrete block. The possibility of using Waste marble powders (WMP) as a substitute for limestone was investigated over a three-year period. The production of cement block from sludge was standardized in terms of process and content. Interpretation of the results have shown that appropriate incorporation of WMP can result in favorable characteristics in terms of compression strength 6-7 N/nm2 at 28 days, and water absorption (7%), anticipating a complimentary usage of sludge as a by-product instead of being waste.
