Washing aggregate sludge (WAS) from a gravel pit and sewage sludge (SS) from a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) were analysed in terms of their physical, mineral and chemical characteristics. Both waste materials were mixed, milled and made into granules, pre-heated for 2 and 5 min and sintered in a rotary kiln at temperatures between 1175 °C and...

... The construction industry has great potential to provide an alternative for the safe disposal of DWTS in construction-based materials. Several beneficial uses of DWTS are applied in practice globally, such as the use of DWTS in cement [2,7], in concrete and mortar [9,10], in brick production [11], in ceramic production [12][13][14], in pavement and geotechnical applications [15,16], and as an aggregate [17,18] in the civil engineering and construction sectors. ...
... This process is commonly used in Europe, the US and Japan ( -Maroto et al., 2020). Moreover, with progress in technology, LW aggregates are manufactured from different waste products, including glass waste (Chang et al., 2016), sewage sludge (Liu et al., 2018;González-Corrochano et al., 2016) and polymeric sludge (Wei et al., 2017;Moreno-Maroto et al., 2019), to eradicate the waste and utilize it for useful purposes to have a valuable impact on the economy and environment. Huang et al. (Huang and Wang, 2013) assessed the manufacturing of LW aggregates from water treatment sludge, finding that the chemical composition of the water treatment sludge meets the requirements for the production of LW aggregates established by Riley (1951), with 10%wt of Fe 2 O 3 in the sludge (Huang et al., 2005). ...
