A pilot study investigates the potential of reusing red mud, an abundant industrial waste produced from alumina refining by the Bayer process, by geopolymerization reactions with another solid waste, fly ash, and sodium silicate. Parameters involved in the synthesis, including red mud to fly ash ratio (values of 80/20, 50/50, and 20/80), presence of sand filler, curing duration (up to 28 days), and sodium silicate solution to solid mixture (consisting of red mud and fly ash) ratio, were… CONTINUE READING
