Using the industrial wastes such as fly ash, phyllite and ove tails, the light ordinary type and high strength ceramsite are produced based on the different formulations by rotary kiln. The study is totally based on industrial wastes to produce new building materials. It is far-reaching practical significance for sustainable development of environment. Ceramsite is artificial light aggregate, which has the features of big surface area and light density, and widely apply in housing construction，road and bridge engineering etc. It is can place gravel as the main concrete aggregate in building structure to reduce the structural weight, improve the earthquake resistance of building structures, increase safety and durability of the structure. For road pavement, it can increase the wear resistance of the road. For wall materials, it is lightweight, high strength, maintain the temperature, heat insulation and sound insulation. It also used in buildings with its superiority, which has the functions such as fire-resistant, high temperature, anti-radiation.
