Concrete is a global material that underwrites commercial well-being and social development. These days, there two commonly used structural materials: concrete and steel [1]. Concrete which contains waste products as aggregate is called ‘Green’ concrete. Use of hazardous waste in concrete-making will lead to green environment and sustainable concrete technology and so such concrete can also be called as ‘Green’ concrete. Concrete are mostly used in construction engineering field because the used of the material are economics and have higher strength, durability and availability of raw materials. For this research, the concrete have been modified by replaced the fine aggregate with Ceramic Industrial Waste (CIW) in concrete mix. Construction and Demolition (C&D) wastes contribute the highest percentage of wastes worldwide (75%) [2]. Ceramic industry produces 30% - 40% of waste from the manufacturing of the ceramic such as ceramic powder, sludge, and the rejected ceramic tiles. Most of the waste are discarded into landfill and this may cause contaminate the soil and the air. Today landfills were designed to minimize the contact with air and water required for degradation, thereby practically eliminating the degradation of waste. Ceramic industrial waste consider hazardous waste because of the dust created can cause health affect and environment degradation. Ceramic industrial waste was chosen due to its beneficial properties into concrete technology which is have good thermal insulator, refractory (material that retains its strength at high temperatures), hard and brittle. The ceramic wastes properties show that it give many advantages in concrete technology which can increase the use of ceramic industrial waste in concrete mix. To protect the environment, the usage of the ceramic industrial waste will give many advantages such as reduce the use of other raw materials. Reuses of the waste give benefits in terms of energy, for the ceramic industry the waste have highly endothermic decomposition reaction (reaction process that requires absorption of heat). This project is about a method to produce ceramic industrial waste as replacement material of fine aggregate in concrete mix.
