Study of Stone Slurry and Recycled Aggregate with Different Mix Proportion

Waseem Akram, Kapil Bhutani, Ajay Thakur


The main thrust of the investigation is to evaluate SS and RA obtained from field operation. Huge amounts of stone slurry (SS) waste are generated every year as a by-product of cutting stones and tiles quarries. The accumulation of SS waste is creating an environmental anxiety since this material is very fine and can penetrate and pollute the groundwater. The investigation is an effort to use the waste from the stone cutting block and demolition of concrete structures. The SS obtained from polishing and cutting of the stone can be used as partial replacement of cement. The concrete obtained from the demolition waste can be used to produce aggregate which in turn can be used for making new concrete of acceptable quality.
