Production of Synthetic Wollastonite Using Gypsum Technogenic Raw Materials


The paper analyzes the literature in the field of synthetic wollastonite production using gypsum technogenic raw materials. Using the example of the complex processing of boric acid production wastes the possibility of obtaining synthetic wollastonite at different modes of waste processing is shown. Possible areas of the practical application of the obtained wollastonite are analyzed.

Keywords: gypsum technogenic raw materials, borogypsum, wollastonite, technogenic waste, concrete fillers, polymeric composite materials.
