Marble sludge is major industrial wastes produced by marble processing industries. These are dumped in the open which pollute and damage the environment. This leads to increased environmental risks as dust pollution spreads alongside for a large area. In the dry season, the dust dries up, floats in the air, flies and deposits on crops and vegetation. In addition, the deposition of such generated huge amount of fine wastes certainly creates necrotic ecological conditions for flora and fauna changing landscapes and habitats. The accumulated waste also contaminates the surface and underground water reserves. To explore the profitable use marble sludge in large scale, Technology and Action for Rural Advancement (TARA), New Delhi, has taken up an initiative to pilot research and demonstrate the same in selected areas of Rajasthan. The project focuses on exploring the use of marble sludge in building materials e.g. various types of roofing, walling and flooring materials.
