Abstract

The fine municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) bottom ash (0-2 mm) is pre-treated and used as cement replacement to investigate its effect on the properties of mortar. The chemical and physical properties of the treated bottom ash are characterized, and the metallic aluminum content is determined. The treated bottom ash is used in mortar as cement replacement by 30% wt. The flowability of the fresh mortar with treated bottom ash is determined, and the flexural and compressive strengths of the mortar after different curing times are measured. Finally, the influential factors of the application of treated bottom ash as binder on the properties of mortar are summarized.
