brick production, clay, load capacity, red mud


Millions of tons of red mud are currently generated in the world as a by-product of aluminium production. The storage of this red mud causes both technological and environmental problems for professionals. Therefore, an important area of research is to prioritize research into the use of red mud as a secondary raw material. Several studies have already been carried out on the subject, either on the utilization of the metal content of red mud or even on its use in building industry, but economical, industrial-scale application has not yet been achieved in either case. The aim of the present research is to develop an economical technology base for the use of red mud as a secondary raw material in the brick industry.
