    Abstract:

    Ammonium Jarosite waste released from zinc extraction process possess serious environmental problem due to the presence of toxic metals such as Pb, Cd, Zn, As etc. Its disposal in open tailing damps has become a major environmental concern with contamination effects of water, soil and vegetation. The current paper considers the ammonium jarosite waste in Mitrovica Industrial Park, Kosovo in order to evaluate the characteristics of jarosite waste, identify the potential environmental impacts and understand its potential for recycling or utilization as a challenge for development of positive "green" image environmental protection and sustainable hazard waste management in future. XRD, SEM and TG/DTA were used to analyze the characterization features of ammonium jarosite. The results give an initial understanding of the ammonium jarosite strengths as recycled material in construction industry. The utilization options showed very useful contribution towards proper environmental, social and economic management development.
    Key word: ammonium jarosite, characteristics, utilization.
