Abstract: The present study focused on the production of artificial aggregates by means of pelletization. Factors affecting the efficiency of pelletization process are type of binder, moisture content, process duration and alkali binder dosage. The various alkali binder dosages to assist the iron ore tailing and fly ash particles coagulation within to produce the artificial aggregates pellets were investigated with other parameters as constant. The produced artificial aggregates were analysed for the pelletization efficiency of pellets produced through sieve analysis. It was observed from the test results that the pelletization efficiency of different aggregates was found to vary with increase in dosage of alkali solution to binder ratio. The pelletization efficiency also found to be varying with the change in proportion of flyash and iron ore tailing.
