The main objectives of this work have been the followings: firstly, the caracterization of raw materials and by-products (co-products and wastes) from the titanium dioxide industry in relation to their elemental composition (major, minor and trace elements), radioactive contents, granulometry, mineralogy and microsopic morphology, and secondly the valorisation of these wastes �red gypsum� (RG) and �tionite� (untouched mud) (TI). The second objective of this thesis has been the valorisation of red gypsum and tionite wastes. Technological applications have bee developed in fields such as construction and civil engineering.
