Microstructural Study of Cement Composites Produced by Hazardous Waste Stabilization/Solidification


Article Preview

This paper deals with the chosen hazardous waste solidification/stabilisation (S/S) under the catalogue code 190811 using cement matrix with addition of classic fly ash and fluid fly ash as secondary raw binders. The main task of the research works was a microstructural study of the most successful S/S formula that will be used for development of new reclamation material. The S/S process product was subject to X-Ray analysis and to the electron microscopy analysis two years after its production to evaluate the possibility of degradation of the cement composite and releasing the contaminants into environment.
