Palm oil industry is one of the major agro-industries in countries like Malaysia and Thailand. This industry produces a large amount of waste in the forms of empty fruit bunches, fibres and kernels. These by-products are normally used as fuel to heat up boiler for generation of electricity in palm oil factories. The ash derived from the process has been known as palm oil fuel ash (POFA). Realizing the potential pozzolanic property of POFA coupled with aims at reducing the potential environmental problems associated with disposing of POFA, alleviating the negative implications normally linked to cement production especially green-house gasses mission and preserving the non-renewable natural resources for producing cement, many researchers have attempted to utilize POFA as pozzolanic mineral admixture in concrete.
