Recycled Plaster and Red Ceramic Waste Based Mortars

Sara B. Ferreira, Paulo C. Domingues, Silvete M. Soares, and Gladis Camarini
Abstract—Construction is the activity that generates more waste in the world. Even with international actions being done to seek sustainable solutions in human activities, few changes in the construction have been observed. In Brazil, measures are being taken to adapt the waste-generating activities to new environmental commitments. In 2002, a specific law on construction and demolition waste (CDW) (Res. 307 Law 12,305) was established to reduce its production or use its material and ensure its proper destination. In 2011 the plaster recycling was established by resolution 431 amending Res. 307. Thus, this work had the objective of using waste gypsum and red ceramic as building material. Different proportions were mixed and tests were made to evaluate their physical and mechanical performance and also optical microscopy. The results indicated that the mortar produced with recycled plaster and ceramic waste meets Brazilian technical standards as components of brick wall.

Index Terms—Ceramic waste, construction and demolition waste, plaster, recycling.
