Thermal Characterization of Sintered Clay-Petroleum Waste Mix by the Photoacoustic Technique

In Campos oil Basin (Brazil), which is responsible for more than 80 % of the national petroleum production, it is generated a great amount of wastes from deep crude oil extraction related activities. Particularly, the oil sludge waste has been intensely studied in order to search alternatives for the reuse of the waste in treated form in the ceramic industry. the present work focuses on the photoacoustic thermal characterization of sintered ceramic bodies containing up to 5 wt.% added waste. Specimens were uniaxially pressed at 25 MPa, and sintered between 850 °C and 1000 °C. The results of thermal diffusivity indicate that the use of petroleum waste in structural ceramic up to 5 wt.% does not cause significant changes in the structure or composition of the clay/waste system, resulting in great advantages in waste minimization.
