Image of granite – Granite is igneous rock formed by volcanic magma. It can be cut, polished and installed as countertops, fireplace mantels, tiles, paving and many other design elements. The production of these products granite creates a sludge recycle scientists in a number of productive and environmentally friendly ways. Granite dust or sludge is used to create stained glass green, according to course Waste Management Cevalor technologies in alternative applications of granite and marble sludge. These materials must be dried before mixing with silica powder forming glass products. The high iron content granite sludge is responsible for the coloring is added to the glass.
I will give an image of granite in order to clarify this description. Marble or granite sludge is used as filler in the production of tiles or bricks. The mud has no adverse effects on the final product durability. After the sludge has been added to the pre-combustion product, the mixture is heated to temperatures as high as 2000 degrees Fahrenheit then cooled in molds to form bricks or tiles. According to a 2006 study published by Science Direct, between 10 and 50 percent of a product of red clay it can be made of marble or granite sludge while still maintaining the consistency and durability of hardened clay.

Another 2010 study published by Science Direct notes that granite sludge can be added to cement mortar to increase durability and provide pigmentation. The study found that the sludge granite was “effective charge material for mortars.” These mixtures can be easily calcified at low temperatures to produce a vermilion coloring concrete mortar. In the cultivation of crops in dry climates or grown hydroponically – using high power lamps inside – granite dust sludge can help preserve the moisture and soil pH, a process usually carried out by dry limestone or other chemical means. Studies suggest crushed granite can even add nutrients to the soil, thus benefiting yields. Below there are image of granite can you see.
