TWO MAIN TYPES OF WASTE

  • Small shapeless blocks deriving by cutting and sawing of stone

B) Muds produced by sawing and polishing operations on slabs

Air dried filter-pressed mud

A) Small shapeless blocks deriving by cutting and sawing of stone

Re-used in the building industry as inert matter, aggregate in concretes and, as a function of its mineralogical composition, as raw material for other industrial processes.

Discards from calcareous rocks with a suitable calcite content can be used to produce binders, or as weak abrasive agents;

Discards from silicate-rich rocks (granitoid rocks) to produce, after beneficiation process, quartz-feldsphatic sands for the ceramic industry.

B) Muds produced by sawing and polishing operations on slabs

Obtained after sawing and polishing processes; it is made up by fine grain size material produced by the rock mixed with the tool cooling water. Suitable processes allow to extract the solid portion.

Two possible destinations

2) Recovery of the waste for possible technological applications as a function of its features

  • Landfill disposal as non-dangerous special waste

Necessary if we consider that sawing operations carried out with frames or diamond disks may determine an increase in the waste of heavy metals

Cr, Ni, Cu, Mn, Fe

Co, Cu

If leaching tests provide values higher than those admittable, it is necessary to separate the metal fraction from the wastes. It was found out that this kind of separation can give satisfactorily results as far as Co is considered

Landfill disposal = cost

transportation

Purchase and management of filter press

Overall evaluation: Rs. 1-2 per kg of mud

As a function of factors such as the type of plan, distance from the landfill, regional market, etc.

Recovery of the waste, on the basis of their mineralogical and chemical features, for different and compatible uses

MUDS deriving from sawing of:

STONES, MARBLE, SLATES

GRANITES

Features of the waste: muds bearing at least 85% of calcium carbonate on dry matter.

Features of the waste: filter pressed muds bearing more than 50 % of silicates

Recovery activity: dehydration, drying, sieving, grinding, micronizing:

Recovery activity: dehydration, drying, sieving, grinding, micronizing, compacting and deironization:

a) Paper industry;

b) Production of hydropaintings;

c) Neutralization of acid wastes;

d) Reagent for desulphuration of combustion smokes;

a) Brick industry as material added to the mixture (not higher than 5% of dry matter);

b) ceramic industry;

Common to both:

-) Cement industry;

-) Road subfloor (recover subordinate to the fulfillment of leaching tests on the untreated waste according to a normalized method);

-) Environmental restorations (recover subordinate to the fulfillment of leaching tests on the untreated waste according to a normalized method);

-) As blanketing material for urban solid waste landfill disposal areas; (recovery subordinate to the fulfillment of leaching tests on the untreated waste according to a normalized method);

Treated or untreated wastes, if admitted for a reuse, can be destined for technological applications in:

  • Pedotechnical uses

- building industry

Lightweigth Expanded Aggregates

Lightweight concretes

In both directions the research was addressed in order to verify if it was possible to give an innovative contribution to this aspect

- building industry

Lightweight concretes

Previous experiences on the use of these wastes for the production of LEAs

Wastes deriving from sawing and polishing operations may contain expanding agents

In particular, those showing a silicatic composition (GRANITE s.l.) can definitely give Lightweight expanded aggregates (LEAs) once properly mixed with other industrial wastes bearing expanding agents

PEDOTECHNICAL USES

1) USE OF SILICATE BEARING WASTES AS POTASSIC FERTILIZERS

For soils characterized by a low content of nutritional elements

2) USE OF SILICATE BEARING WASTES AS

ENVIRONMENTAL RECOMPOSITION

To produce artificial proto-horizons as substrate for plants

3) USE OF CARBONATE BEARING WASTES AS AMENDANT OF ACID SOILS

Scale models in confined environments on soils with acid reaction (pH<5.5)

Mou between is i m italy and m s r k marble mpuat udaipur india

MoU between IS.I.M, Italy and M/s R.K. Marble & MPUAT, Udaipur India

Objectives of MoU

  • To enhance scientific, technical and professional contacts and partnership between Italy and India

  • To achieve general transfer of know-how and advanced technologies from Italy to India through training and research activities

  • Promote jointly a technical and scientific research on diamond wire technologies – on variable speed diamond wire saw machine and single diamond wire block dressing machine

TWO SCIENTIFIC REEARCH PROJECTS COMPLETED

Project “A”

Study on and test to know the influence of the peripheral speed on wire life, saw output etc.in white dolomitic marble stone (Machine used: Make – Marini, Italy )

Project “B”

To know the performance of the new Italian technology i.e. stationary single diamond wire block dressing machine

Research target

RESEARCH TARGET

  • Use of powder in Agriculture by making experiments with pot culture

  • Use of powder in block and brick making

  • Use in road filling

  • Production of light agreegate


Proposed work plan

PROPOSED WORK PLAN

  • To procure the necessary granite powder from the field to set up the experiments in India and Italian University. The selection of the powder will be from following possible site:

  • - The powder from Indian granites after polishing/grinding phase.

  • - The powder of Indian gang saw plants processing of big blocks

  • - The powder from Indian granites after steel grit gang saw phase.

  • Determination of chemical and mineralogical properties of the granite powder

  • To send of powder of various types to Italian University for testing purposes as per directive Of Eng Paolo Marone, IS.I.M., Italy

  • Setting experiments as pot culture in the department of mining engineering with varying the percentage of granite and marble and dolomite powder in same type of soil. Observation periodically under the supervision of scientist and contractual research assistant of the agriculture field.

  • Making blocks with various granite powder ratio and to carry out the strength properties of blocks and possible uses.
