The use of Norilsk region’s sulfur and hes ash for hydraulic engineering and reconstruction

Building Materials

As a result of the industrial activity millions of tons of industrial wastes are piled in the industrially developed countries. They occupy huge spaces, worsen ecological situation and require proper recovery.

The paper contains the information about the ways of technical sulfur and ash recovery from the thermal power station which are used for obtaining artificial fillers and as components in the hydraulic concretes. Comparative characteristics that identify preferential parameters of sulfur concrete with respect to cement concretes are presented. Also the possibility of using technical sulfur and compositions based on it in hydraulic engineering as an anti-screen were investigated.

Studies have revealed the fundamental possibility of obtaining high-quality sulfur compounds on the basis of industrial wastes and their field of application was determined.
