The Use of Biomass Combustion Ashes in Brick Making

  • Fritz MoedingerEmail author
Chapter

Abstract

The addition of biomass ashes to a brick feed has been investigated in a full-scale industrial production process over several days. The addition of biomass ashes to the brick feed is part of an ongoing research and development project targeted at substituting or combining quarried raw materials with suitable waste materials. In this chapter some of the early results of the first industrial trial runs with biomass ashes are presented. The main scope of this ongoing research and development project is reduction of production cost, generation of additional revenue from gate fees, and improvement of product characteristics.
