Abstract: 

A characterization of the properties of waste ceramic powder that is generated during advanced hollow brick production is presented. The main aim of the study is to facilitate environmental-friendly applications of the ceramic in the building sector. Therefore, its reactivity with cement is analyzed using isothermal calorimetry. Experimental results show that the investigated waste fine-grained ceramic material has good potential in application in concrete mix design from both environmental and economical 

Keywords:
