Spent Wash, Distillery Waste, Fly Ash Brick

Distillery spent wash is the unwanted residual liquid waste generated during alcohol production and pollution caused by it is one of the most critical environmental issue. Despite standards imposed on effluent quality, untreated or partially treated effluent very often finds access to watercourses. In research work two different test namely compressive strength test & water absorption test are performing. A distillery spent wash was added with replacement of water for prepare of fly ash brick with different percentage likely 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, & 100%. The compressive strength test performs at different days like 7, 28, & 56 days respectively & water absorption test carried out at 27 days. From the analysis of data it will conducted that replacement of 100% spent wash with water give higher strength at end of 56 days compare to the standard fly ash brick. While it will provide nearer strength to the standard brick at 28 days when we replace the spent wash as 100%. Water absorption is also main factor for any brick & also during use of spent wash water absorption are less compare to the standard brick when use 100% spent wash. Also it will reduce during adding of spent wash as 40% and 60% compare to the standard brick.
