Abstract

Recycling of industrial wastes aids environmentally friendly production and has the advantage of lowering costs. Marble production generates large amounts of waste. Recycling of such wastes by incorporating them into ceramic industry is a practical solution for pollution problem. The aim of this work is to assess the possibility of the recycling of marble wastes in the production of stoneware clay bodies as a raw material for ceramic artwork production. Five different clay body mixes containing marble waste up to 27% were prepared and evaluated for firing color, water emission, morphology, microstructure, thermal expansion coefficient and thermal behavior. The results of the tests show that the utilization of marble waste in stoneware body is feasible for ceramic artwork production.
