This paper describes the investigations carried out to evaluate the possibility of processing the coal-preparation refuse into construction aggregate. The refuse material was fired and processed on a pilot traveling grate machine to produce sintered lightweight aggregate. The fired product, or the sinter cake, as it is called, was then crushed using a jaw crusher to produce various sizes and gradings, which could then be evaluated as an aggregate and also further evaluated in concrete, concrete block, and bituminous mixes.
