With the appearance of solid waste from fluorescent lamps in the environment, considered polluting pollutants, the artificial stone appear as a sustainable escape for commercialization and recycling. The objective of the project is to evaluate the effect of incorporating the residue of fluorescent lamps into artificial stone using a polymeric matrix and to verify their physical and mechanical properties, according to standards. The methodology was the “Vibro, Compression, Vacuum” process that is currently used by the compacted artificial stone industry. In this process, the residue was mixed with the castor bean polymeric resin and subsequently submitted to a temperature of 80ºC under 10ton pressure, promoting polymerization. The results have shown a density of 2.18g / cm³, porosity 1.84% and water absorption 0.84%. It is concluded that the innovative product has an average quality and it can be applied in some areas in civil construction, according to some researchers.
