Ceramic based composite materials are by weight the materials type most fabricated worldwide. With the increasing pollution and all the derived environmental problems, ceramic composites fabricated with residual ceramic materials are a high impact solution not only to the environment, but also to new business. This presentation explore the progress using diverse solid wastes for making ceramic composites worldwide and also present some case studies in Colombia.
