AB  - The traditional ceramics industry uses large amounts of primary mineral raw materials. Improvements in the production of building materials based on non-metallic minerals can contribute to sustainable development in many ways, such as saving natural resources, using waste materials, reducing energy consumption, decreasing emissions hazardous to the health and the environment, particularly carbon dioxide, and reclamation of mines after exploitation of raw materials, etc. This paper describes the state of application of mineral raw materials and waste in the traditional ceramics industry with a perspective on future challenges. Intensified research is needed to complement the laboratory data and re-scale to the industrial-sized products while improving communication between both sectors.

AB  - This study illustrates the utilization of roof tile waste as a resource in the manufacturing of fired bricks. Although commonly referred to as demolition waste, it is technically classifed as construction and demolition waste
(C&D). This demolition waste was used as a partial replacement of two soils (alluvial and laterite soil) at three firing temperatures that were considered economical (700, 850, and 900 ◦C). The waste considered was obtained from roof tiles previously fired at a low temperature below 800 ◦C, thus containing residual carbonates and clay
minerals. The increased waste input resulted in higher firing shrinkage, bulk density, and water absorption while
decreasing loss on ignition. An increase in firing temperature led to higher firing shrinkage, loss on ignition, and
bulk density, but lower water absorption. The bricks met both Indian and ASTM standards for 2nd and 3rd class
by adding 20–35 wt% of roof tile waste and firing at 850–900 ◦C in laboratory and industrial settings. The
minimum acceptable quality for the produced bricks was achieved with an addition of 35 wt% waste, resulting in
a water absorption of approximately 19% and a compressive strength ranging from 6 to 9 MPa. The study suggests that incorporating waste from demolished roof tiles into the production of burned bricks can be advantageous.
It can partially replace the need for soils, reduce natural resource usage, lower energy consumption
during production, and decrease the carbon footprint.

AB  - In this paper, the drying modeling of roofing tiles was done using a "lumped" approach. In other words, several forces that are influencing internal moisture transport are combined to create effective moisture diffusivity. For this reason, the effective diffusivity coefficient was added to Cranck's diffusion equation. In their earlier works, the authors published the solution to the diffusion equation, which assumes that effective diffusivity is constant. It was demonstrated that, particularly if shrinkage is not taken into account during the computation stage, the simulated drying curves differ from the experimental results. The next step was to ascertain the time-dependent effective diffusivity and to more precisely anticipate the drying kinetic. The general functional relationship between effective moisture diffusivity and Fourier number was first determined to fulfill this assignment. Experimental proof of the proposed model was provided. Less than 3% of the outcomes from the simulation and the experiment deviated from each other. This was a resounding affirmation that effective diffusivity is not constant during drying and that all internal transport mechanisms are observable in their time-dependent relation.

AB  - The study makes a unique effort to characterize all the necessary characteristics of refractory clays and products fired at temperatures between 1100 and 1300 °C on a laboratory level. For 19 composite samples from the recently opened reservoir, thorough instrumental and ceramic-technological data are presented. The potential for using Serbian raw refractory clays from the recently discovered deposit is investigated. The composites had a variety of qualities and varied in composition, but they were majorly composed of kaolinite and illite and had a significant share of fluxes. The samples had high quantities of clay minerals and organic matter, which is seen as the most intense mass loss in the 400–600 °C range. Low-duty and high-duty refractories could be distinguished by their refractoriness over 1581 °C. This parameter was mostly influenced by the content of alumina and kaolinite within the materials. Hydraulically-pressed ceramic tiles, following firing stage showed water absorption was between 9.02–1.42 % and and modulus of rupture of 16.5 – 53.6 MPa. Color is determined by spectrophotometer and correlated to the composition of the initial clay and fired products. For the lining of ceramic and glass furnaces, the majority of these clays can be employed as natural refractory materials. Some of the samples' organic content has a detrimental effect on the fast-firing procedure, since the occurrence of the entrapped air (bloating).

AB  - In this paper, the drying modeling of roofing tiles was done using a "lumped" approach. In
other words, several forces that are influencing internal moisture transport are combined to
create effective moisture diffusivity. For this reason, the effective diffusivity coefficient was
added to Cranck's diffusion equation. In their earlier works, the authors published the solution
to the diffusion equation, which assumes that effective diffusivity is constant. It was
demonstrated that, particularly if shrinkage is not taken into account during the computation
stage, the simulated drying curves differ from the experimental results. The next step was to
ascertain the time-dependent effective diffusivity and to more precisely anticipate the drying
kinetic. The general functional relationship between effective moisture diffusivity and Fourier
number was first determined to fulfill this assignment. Experimental proof of the proposed
model was provided. Less than 3% of the outcomes from the simulation and the experiment
deviated from each other. This was a resounding affirmation that effective diffusivity is not
constant during drying and that all internal transport mechanisms are observable in their timedependent
relation.

AB  - The technical features of the issues caused by the brick industry's usage of petroleum coke as a fuel were identified in this study. The effects were evaluated in terms of the concentration of hazardous materials in petroleum coke, the CO2, SO2 and NOx emissions in the flue gases, the corrosion of refractory materials in the furnace, the corrosion of pipelines and metal structures in the dryer and furnace, the deposition of sulfate scum on dry products, and the fixation of white scum on finished products. To assess the microstructure and composition of the regions of the samples exposed to flue gases and that inside the material, refractory brick samples from the furnace walls were examined under a microscope. The compressive stress of the part of the sample affected by the flue gas from the kiln is lowered by 37.3 %, which is caused by the agglomeration of sulfate salts and the presence of a high quantity of vanadium. It was determined that, regardless of potential energy savings, the sulfur concentration in petroleum coke must be below 5% if utilized as an energy source in the brick sector since there are suitable conditions for accelerated corrosion processes.

AB  - The European Green Deal, which emphasizes zero-waste economies, and waste recycling
in construction and building materials, has arisen due to significant worldwide needs for solid waste recovery and usage. This ambitious study focuses on recycling mixed construction and demolition (C&D) waste into burnt bricks and investigating the influence of firing temperature. While pursuing its objectives, this is dependent on raw material characterization and burnt-brick product quality assessment. The recycling of mixed C&D waste is explored by mixing the waste into two soil types (alluvial and laterite) in ratios ranging from 5% to 45% at three firing temperatures (700 °C, 850 °C and 900 °C). The utilization of mixed C&D waste in amounts of 10% at 700 °C and 25% at 850 °C and 900 °C fulfilled the Indian standard. Although a fire at 700 °C results in less optimal waste utilization, it is beneficial and recommended for reducing the carbon footprint and energy use. Additional mineralogical and microstructural analyzes are performed on the optimal fired samples.
The study’s findings are promising for sustainable resource usage, reducing carbon footprint, and
reducing waste disposal volume. This research is a big step toward the Sustainable Development
Goals of the United Nations and a circular economy.

AB  - The chemical compositions of refractory materials, such as high-alumina concrete, bricks, and putty, were analyzed using an energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDXRF). An improved methodology for investigating the effect of particle size on the outcomes of EDXRF chemical analysis is presented. Eight independent refractory samples (refractory concrete, brick, and putty) were pulverized utilizing seven milling times (30, 60, 120, 180, 240, 300, and 360 s) and compared to non-pulverized samples. Thus, sixty-four refractory samples were obtained and analyzed using EDXRF. The method for measuring the fundamental EDXRF characteristics was then tested with ten certified reference materials. The acquired data were compared using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). Univariate and multivariate statistics are used to evaluate EDXRF data. The particle size of the tested samples affected the z-scores of SiO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3, TiO2, CaO, MgO, Na2O, K2O, and P2O5 concentration measurements. Grinding times for refractory concrete, brick, and putty samples were determined in order to validate the robustness of the EDXRF technique and provide reliable chemical analyses. The ideal milling times for the samples studied ranged from 180 to 360 s, depending on the type of refractory material.

AB  - Finding a solution to the problem of the large buildup of coal ashes is a vital necessity. Although the use of coal
ashes in fired clay bricks has been thoroughly investigated, there is insuffcient information on their industrial
utilization and researchers do not agree on whether or not this addition improves the quality of the fnal
products. Therefore, a database has gathered 20 years of research containing key factors related to the quality of
the bricks (i.e., chemical composition, fring temperature, soaking time, open porosity, water absorption and
compressive strength). Then, random forest regression and artifcial neural networks (ANN) modeling were used
to separately predict the parameters concerning the quality of the fnal products. The overall conclusions were
that the compressive strengths were the highest when using fly ashes and that class F ashes were highly suitable
to be used in the brick industry as a replacement material for brick clay. In addition, the ANN models showed
higher coeffcients of determination and an overall better fit to the experimental data. By changing the chemical
makeup of the initial materials and their proportions, the particle size of the ashes, the firing temperature and
soaking time, as well as the size of a product, the created models can be used to estimate the quality of the brick
containing coal ash. That is crucial because the inconsistent chemical composition of ash is generally the main
obstacle to its utilization. The local sensitivity analysis revealed the highest influence of the content of the alkali
oxides in the initial clay on the fired clay bricks due to their fluxing effect. In the case of ash-clay bricks, the
decisive factors were the type of furnace used, the ashes’ class, the Na2O content in raw clay, and the K2O
introduced with the ash. The F class ashes containing about 2–3% of K2O and <5% of CaO gave the highest
compressive strength in bricks fred at 1000–1100 ◦C.
Additional analyzes were made for 50% pond ash and 50% clay bricks to test the best-suited model and fill in
the knowledge gap. The results obtained in this study are important for supporting the decision in the selection of
materials and process parameter values that will increase the quality of the ash-clay-fired bricks.

AB  - Over the past few decades, the fired clay brick industry has searched for industrial wastes to substitute raw clay deposits and lessen their impact on the environment. Despite several investigations showing positive results, industrial applicability is still scarce, mainly due to differences between industrial and laboratory procedures and the usage of certain wastes that already have added value in other circular economy chains. In addition, the assessment of such proposals commonly misses the environmental impact issue which is merely assumed to be positive. For these reasons this study, for the first time, has assessed together technological properties and the environmental impact of bricks made by strictly following industrial procedures. Hence, biomass bottom ash (BBA) was added at 9 replacement ratios, ranging from 2.5 to wt. 20.0% for making extruded bricks subjected to industrial drying and firing curves. Physical, thermal and mechanical properties of fired products were properly assessed and compared with the requirements set forth by Chilean standards. In addition, a life cycle impact assessment was developed to compare the ecological footprint among series. Although mechanical and water-proof requirements may limit the replacement ratio for exposed bricks, the feasibility of using BBA at industrial scale has been successfully demonstrated. Regarding the environmental impact, the raw clay may be replaced without adversely causing toxicity levels to exceed mandatory limits. However, this study demonstrated that the incorporation of BBA increases CO2 emissions due to the decomposition of contained carbonates during the firing process which compromise the results in terms of global warming potential and water consumption which highly impact on human health and ecosystems quality.

AB  - The present study analyses the usage possibility of the 7
raw kaolinitic clays from Serbia. The characterization of
raw materials is done by using instrumental techniques to
determine chemical and mineralogical compositions, particle
size distribution and behavior during firing (changes in
mass, temperature of the system and dimensions). Additionally,
refractoriness is determined for each of the materials.
The samples are shaped by the extrusion process and fired
in a 1000-1250 °C range. The ceramic and technological
characteristics of the fired samples are determined, and
micromorphology is recorded. It is concluded that most of
the tested clays can be used to produce cream-colored
extruded ceramic tiles with water absorption between 0.20
and 5.28 % by firing at 1250 °C. The majority of the samples
can be used as ceramic tiles for flooring purposes after
firing at 1200 °C. Additionally, all samples are found suitable
for special purpose roofing tiles production after firing
at 1100 °C.

AB  - Phyllosilicate mineral pyrophyllite is predominantly used in the ceramic industry because it exhibits high refractoriness. Due to its thermal transformation into mullite, pyrophyllite is stable at elevated temperatures, making it a suitable mineral additive for refractory non-shaped materials and various ceramic shaped products. In this study, pyrophyllite is employed as 50 % clay replacement in the ceramics and up to 30 % cement replacement in mortars. Physico-mechanical properties were investigated. The firing shrinkage in the ceramics treated at 1200°C was reduced by pyrophyllite addition. Pyrophyllite acted as additional pozzolana during cement hydration. Within the microstructure, it formed micro-reinforcement in the shape of crystalline folia, which improves the mechanical properties of ordinary Portland cement, high aluminate cement, and blended cement mortars. The investigation proved the efficiency and suitability of pyrophyllite employed as a substitution for clay in ceramics and a cement replacement in mortars.

AB  - The main idea of the present study was to investigate the impact of the ongoing world
crisis on the socio-economic issues in Serbia concerning building materials usage and purchase. This research fills in the gaps in the literature and contributes to the comprehension of how the crisis has affected salaries, market pricing, and materials consumption in the building sector. The data are gathered through a questionnaire and analyzed using a statistical methodology (frequencies, descriptive statistics, and Spearman’s correlations). Most of the former studies investigated the surveys conducted on specialists in the field, while this study analyzed the perspectives of random people. Socio-demographic issues are analyzed along with materials consumption before and after the crisis. A special emphasis is given to ecological awareness and novel materials usage. Additionally, it captures a broad shift in the economy and ecological consciousness in a developing country. The majority of respondents are open to using novel building materials and products, but their choice would largely be influenced by cost, the amount of effort involved, and their understanding of the advantages. Statistical approaches revealed that the crisis has a considerable impact on the markets for construction and building supplies, altering consumers’ decisions when purchasing.
This contribution lays the groundwork for developing countries in the modern world to improve
sustainability and adopt circular thinking. Professionals in Serbia need to have a more eco-aware
mindset and enhance how they provide pertinent information to potential clients. This study is
limited by the number of respondents. For future mathematical modeling and forecasting, more
answerers are needed.

benzenepolycarboxylate ligands have become an area of a great importance due to the possibility of
obtaining useful metal oxides with desirable electrical, magnetic and catalytic properties [1]. As a
contrast to conventional methods for the preparation of metal oxides, such as hydrothermal or sol–
gel treatment, thermolysis is faster, more efficient and environmentally friendly. Mn(II)–dipya
(dipya = 2,2’-dipyridylamine) complex with tetraanion of 1,2,4,5-benzenetetracarboxylic
(pyromellitic, H4pyr) acid, [Mn2(dipya)2(pyr)(H2O)2], has been prepared and characterized by
elemental, spectral and microscopy analyses. Direct thermolysis of the complex up to 1200 °C in an
air atmosphere yielded spinel Mn3O4 oxide material. The obtained Mn3O4 has been characterized
for its structural, spectroscopic, morphological and optical properties. The possibilities of using this
oxide as photocatalyst or co-photocatalyst for removing textile organic dyes, as well as inorganic
pigmentary material, were also investigated and discussed.

AB  - In this paper, the main subject concerns comparing different techniques to prepare raw clay samples for energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (EDXRF). Three kinds of sample preparation procedures are examined,such as loose powder, pressed pellet, and fired pressed pellet. The fired pressed pellet approach was observed as a part of universal sample preparation for physic, mechanical, and instrumental analysis, which has not been previously tested as a solution in chemical analysis by the EDXRF method. The observed sample preparation techniques were compared by calculating the parameters of validation (recoveries, limit of detection-LOD, limit of quantification - LOQ, precision, and expanded uncertainties of measurements) of 11 elements (Si, Al, Fe, Ca, Mg, K, Na, Ti, P, Mn, and S) using 15 certified reference materials (CRMs). Calibration curves were created and evaluated using 30 reference materials (RM) for all three approaches. Results proved that the fired pressed pellet is the most practical and precise approach for sample preparation of raw clays.

AB  - One of the significant problems in the production of ceramic tiles is the very high consump-tion of natural resources such as clay, feldspar, and quartz. The possibility of replacing part of the formulation of ceramic batches is of great importance. In this research, the possibility of using aplitic granite waste from dimensional stone production was analyzed in detail. The waste is considered a low-cost substitute for feldspar in Serbia. The milled powdery waste was analytically tested to reveal its chemical and mineralogical contents, particle size distribution, and other important properties. The ceramic tiles containing aplitic granite waste (GW) and GW/raw clay mixture (CGW) were hydraulically pressed, and the ceramic and technological properties determined. This waste can act as a filler while forming, drying, and firing, since the high content of quartz helps to control the shrinkage and acts as a fluxing agent in high temperatures due to its feldspathic nature. The waste was found favorable in the production of ceramic tiles, as the gained values of modulus of rupture and water absorption were 28.68 MPa and 1.33%, respectively. The parameters defined in the series of standards EN ISO 10545 were tested on a semi-industrial probe, determining that this combination of materials (without the addition of quartz) may be efficiently used to produce ceramic floor tiles. The usage of what would otherwise be waste material contributes to sustainable management and environmentally friendly solutions by avoiding landfilling, while at the same time it enabling the conservation of scarce natural feldspar deposits.

AB  - The industrial raw material compositions in brick
or tile production are normally adapting from time to time
with novel clays. The proper raw material change must be
based on the reliable raw material characterization tests.
Regardless to the fact that commonly used (Bigot, Muller-
Biehl, Ratzenberger, Piltz, Hermansons, etc.) drying
sensitivity criterions allow the comparison of different raw
materials they are not related with the mineral composition
and mechanical nature of clays. Besides these are timedemanding
tests. The X-ray characterization of raw
material is reliable only when orientated samples are
prepared. In other cases, it is necessary to have additional
characterization test such as thermo-differential (DTA) and
thermo-gravimetric (TG) analysis in order to confirm the
presence or absence of individual clay minerals. The
quantity of the interlayer water content present in clays is
in direct correlation with the mineralogical composition
and the clay type. This effect can be easily qualified on the
DTA/TG curves. This was a trigger for establishing the
novel rapid drying sensitivity criteria. The analysis of
different raw materials has confirmed that the moisture
loss registered on TG curves at 2000C can be used as novel
drying sensitivity criterion. This value is respectively for
insensitive raw materials less than 2.0 while for highly
sensitive one is larger than 2.80. The proposed method is
very simple, rapid and reliable for the application in brick
and tile industry. The second objective of this paper was to
compare the results of the proposed method with the
widely used Bigoth, Ratzenberg and Piltz tests. A good
correlation was found.

AB  - Phyllosilicate mineral pyrophyllite possesses talc’s characteristic softness and crystalline structure, but it also exhibits high refractoriness. Pyrophyllite is predominantly being used in the ceramic materials (tiles, porcelain) as a replacement of quartz, clay or feldspar. Due to its thermal transformation into mullite, pyrophyllite is stable at elevated temperatures. Its ion-exchanging properties are crucial for stabilization of the toxic elements in building materials. In this study pyrophyllite is used as a mineral additive for two types of construction products: traditional ceramic materials and refractory mortars. The experimental samples were prepared using 50 % of pyrophyllite and 50 % of refractory clay, ceramic clay, and carbonate brick clay, respectively. The samples were formed into discs or tiles using the compression method. The following characteristics have been investigated: resistance to firing (900 – 1300°C), carbonate content, plasticity coefficient, dimensional changes after drying at 105°C and upon firing, water absorption, and mechanical strength. Refractory samples were prepared using andalusite as aggregate, ordinary Portland cement and/or high aluminate cement as binder, and pyrophyllite as an additive (10 %, 20 %, and 30 %). Compressive and flexural strength both at normal and at elevated temperature were tested on the samples, along with the refractoriness. The changes that pyrophyllite addition brings to the material’s mineral composition, microstructure, as well as to bonding/sintering mechanisms were monitored using instrumental techniques (DTA, TGA, XRD). The aim of the investigation was to prove potential suitability of pyrophyllite as efficient and sustainable resource for the production of ceramic and refractory materials.
