Abstract:In Brazil, the growth of the petroleum industry has resulted in an increasing amount of toxic oily wastes that have a high environmental impact. This work analyses the possibility of recovering waste from the petroleum industry using the powder technology route to produce clay-based ceramics. Batches of clay-petroleum waste mixes with up to 20 wt.% waste were prepared. The results showed that the incorporation of petroleum waste influenced the technological properties of the fired pieces. Leaching tests have shown that the petroleum waste could be inertised within a clay ceramic fired at 1100°C. In addition, petroleum waste containing pieces presented technological properties acceptable for application in clay-based ceramics.

- The objectives of International Journal of Environment and Waste Management are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy-makers, government agencies, academics and research institutions, and professionals working in the field, and to provide a forum for them to disseminate information. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy. It will serve as a vehicle for the documentation and dissemination of what government bodies, research agencies, international bodies, universities, aid agencies, industries, and environmental scientists and professionals are doing in the areas of environmental and waste management.
