Abstract

Agro-based waste can be used as an additive material in the construction industry. Agro-based materials such as palm kernel shells (PKS) were chosen for this study. PKS are produced in large quantities. Hence, using PKS as an additive may increase concrete durability and contribute to a cleaner environment. As PKS is able to improve the compressive strength of concrete even though its bulk density is much less than standard aggregates which is 1850 kg/m 3, the overall project cost could be reduced by about 42%. The results also satisfied the strength requirement for lightweight concrete brick durability for structural purposes.
