Explain your project in details:

Population growth directly influences the generation of waste at the Water Treatment Stations, thus focusing on environmental, economic and public health issues. The research focuses on the reuse of sludge in the manufacture of the ceramic block. For that, it was analyzed from its generation to its chemical and physical characterization in the laboratory together with the clay being the raw material for this material of the civil construction, and later it was fabricated test bodies with different percentages to analyze the viability of its use.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

The research brings promising results that will contribute both to the preservation of the raw material deposits, to the reuse of the waste that generates contamination to the body of water in which it is dumped, to the protection of the population that may later have contact with it, and to help economically the construction market with ceramic fence blocks.
