Incorporation of a variety of organic wastes
into clay ceramics production for the GHG
Emission Reduction.
Organization

 VIOKERAL , is one of the most important clay building materials producers in
Greece and neighbouring Balkan countries (Bulgaria and Albania) .

 Established in 1920 as family owned company, created through the decades a
great reputation for innovation, progressive development that both finally ensure
reliable quality products, such as: hollow and perforated bricks, roof tilles, and
celler system.
 550.000 tn of ceramic building materials are produced annualy at six different
owned plants fullfilling quality standards and aesthetic design.
 By the participation to the EU – ETS , VIOKERAL organised R&D&I department ,
in order to achieve the KYOTO target and creates CARBON OFFSETS .Thus , in
the production process , valorise waste or by-products into raw materials

Project Idea Concept
1. Production of ceramic products by mixing clay materials with :
 Olive Stone Wooden Residue
 Alperujo (two phase olive oil mills waste)
 Olive Oil Mill Waste Waters (OMWW)
 Other biomass waste (agricultural, food industry)
 Oil drilling and processing
2. Reduction of energy demands (up to 60%)
3. Reduction of water demand (up to 30% for Alperujo and OMWW)
4. Increase resource efficiency through kilns, boilers , heat exchangers
and automation systems.
5. Involve cross - sectorial corporations, machinery constructors and
research institutes to the reduction of GHG emissions and
resource efficiency.
Major Advantages :
a) Holistic approach for resource management
b)Substantial reduction in energy demands and CO2
emissions.
