Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9916611A2] In order to produce ashlars or quarry-stones and/or building cut stones by using municipal and/or industrial solid wastes as raw material possibly mixed with inert quarry materials, an essentially adiabatic compression of such waste materials is carried out. This can be made by using a hammer that strikes the material so as to cause a very quick reduction of the total and specific volume without internal heat exchange among the components of the original material. The ashlar obtained has the characterisitcs of an elastic solid.
