FEASIBILITY STUDY ON RED MUD (INDUSTRIAL WASTE) AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR SOIL, CEMENT AND ITS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTM.P. Sureshkumar and G. Vennila
In India millions of tons of red mud are produced from alumina industries. Its property is similar to sandy clay and it mainly comprises of oxides of aluminium, iron and silicon. Red mud has pozzalonic properties which can be utilised as partial replacement for cement. Its storage has created enormous problems to the environment. To solve this problem alternate uses of red mud should be investigated. This paper deals about the possible utilisation of red mud as a cement and alternate subgrade material based on laboratory findings.
