Abstract

The high amount of organic and inorganic wastes has increased the attention to new strategies aiming to reduce the waste disposals. Organic wastes, such as tomato wastes (TWs), are a good source from which the red color can be obtained. Among the different technologies, the geopolymers had been proposed as a powerful technology able to incorporate various kinds of wastes. In this paper, pure metakaolin and a mixture obtained by adding 10% of red TW-derived (peels) are consolidated by alkali activation at room temperature, 40 and 60°C without the pigment extraction. Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectra confirmed the geopolymerization occurrences. Moreover, the obtained materials are analyzed for their conductivity and pH after the sample extractions at different times. The integrity tests assessed the resistance of the synthesized geopolymers and the presence of red tomato-wastes led to a release of yellow organic hydro-soluble compounds. Finally, the weight loss confirmed the integrity test. Indeed, there are no differences at 16 and 30 d.
