This article presents the results of research into calcareous waste from the production process of oxide propylene. The obtained results show a considerable chemical diversity of calcareous waste with a predominant percentage share of Ca, C and Cl, which are the products of the process. It was shown that the share of calcium bonded in CaCO3was over 20%, which is indicative of the secondary carbonisation process taking place in the waste. The morphological and structural analyses revealed that the grains had a surface area above 12% and a percentage porosity in the range of 25-35%. The reactivity test made it possible to classify calcareous waste as a material for sorbents of 'satisfactory' sorption properties, insufficient to be effectively used in the power sector. For the stored waste to be reused, it is necessary to improve its sorption abilities through the application of a properly selected activation method.
