Refractory products are used in a wide range of industrial processes to withstand high temperatures and harsh conditions. They are essential for the production of metals, glass, cement, and chemicals. However, refractory products can also be a major source of waste.

Traditionally, refractory waste has been disposed of in landfills. However, this is not an environmentally sustainable solution. Landfills can pollute groundwater and air, and they release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

In recent years, there have been a number of advancements in refractory product recycling techniques. These techniques can help to reduce the environmental impact of refractory products by diverting waste from landfills and recovering valuable materials.

One of the most promising new refractory recycling techniques is called hydrometallurgical processing. This technique uses a combination of chemicals and heat to break down refractory waste into its component elements. These elements can then be recovered and reused to produce new refractory products.

Another new refractory recycling technique is called pyrolysis. This technique uses heat to break down refractory waste into a gas, oil, and char. The gas and oil can be used to generate energy, and the char can be used to produce new refractory products.
