Production of artificial aggregate from ashes is worldwide known technology that uses up to 100% of ash in the mixture. There are known two types of aggregate. First is based on binders and known as cold-bonded. Second type of aggregate is produced by self-firing process that uses a content of combustible substances in the mixture. After ignition this fuel generates enough energy for the sintering process. The paper gives an account of the influence of parameters of ash and conditions of firing on the quality of ceramic body made from ash. Temperatures of 1050 °C, 1150 °C and 1200 °C were examined. The research focused on the structure of the ceramic body as well as its physic-mechanical parameters. The results show also that firing temperature is essential for forming the structure. An important indicator is the share of melt that form a solid ash body.Výroba umělého kameniva z popílku je celosvětově známé technologie, která používá až 100 % popílku ve směsi.
