Utilisation of secondary products
FCH-DCO_VSDAcad. year: 2020/2021
The industrial revolution and population explosion of the 19th and 20th centuries causes a gradual depletion of natural resources and the increasing volume of waste produced all kinds, many of which are actually valuable secondary raw materials. The recycling of materials (and energy) is not sufficient, the introduction of waste-free management is unpopular. The course covers comprehensive knowledge of production and the characteristics of the most important, especially large volume produced, inorganic secondary raw materials with emphasis on their industrial use.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Overview of properties and utilization of high-volume secondary raw materials from the power and metallurgical industry, mining waste.
Recommended optional programme components
Malhotra, V.M., Mehta, P.K. High-performance High-volume Fly Ash Concrete for Building Durable and Sustainable Structures (EN)

Language of instruction
Natural sources of raw materials, supplies and utilization, economics and ecology, waste materials versus increasing productivity. Byproducts of industrial activities, secondary raw materials, inorganic and organic, waste-free economy and landfill, waste sorting, legislation and environmental care. Large-volume produced secondary raw materials of electricity and metallurgical industries (high temperature fly ashes and fly ashes from fluidised bed combustion of solid fuels, desulphurization gypsum, blast furnace slags, steel-making slags, foundry slags, slags from production of non-ferrous metals, silica fume, casting sand), wastes from extraction of mineral raw materials (tailings, overburden ceramic raw materials). Sludge municipal wastewater treatment plants. Waste sorting and recycling (paper, metals, glass, plastics, textiles, wood waste), energy recycling, tires. Changes and cancellations of technologies, waste prevention. Conditions for sustainable development prospects for the 21st century.
