The introduction of waste in other production process has emerged as the best economic and environmental alternative. This work aimed to incorporate the residue generated in the electrofusion step of alumina in red ceramics production. For this, the raw materials were chemically characterized and their granulometric distribution determined. Laboratory specimens were made by extrusion and sintered at 850, 950 and 1050 ░C. Afterwards, the ceramic products were submitted to the tests of apparent density, water absorption, apparent porosity, firing linear shrinkage and rupture stress. Despite the deleterious effect of the residue, it was demonstrated the viability in its use as raw material for the ceramic industry, since the properties were within the limits and recommendations for red ceramic products.
