Study of Waste from Two-Phase Olive Oil Extraction as an Additive in Ceramic Material
The properties of ceramic materials are intimately related to a variety of factors, among them shaping procedure and sintering time. These factors condition, the microstructure and properties of the materials developed. Our study has formed materials from clays commonly used in the area of Bailén (Jaén) and wet pomace proceeding from the extraction of olive oil. The materials were shaped through extrusion. In this study, raw materials have been characterized and studied interesting properties of sintered materials, such as compressive strength, water absorption, open porosity or bulk density. The study concluded that the addition of wet pomace from olive oil industry into traditional brick entails a saving of raw materials and reducing the environmental impact generated by their manufacture. The best results are obtained for the samples with waste content of 3 wt %.
