Pervious concrete is defined as a concrete that has high porosity and allows water to drain freely but in term compression it is has low strength. It is also be defined as a concrete low or absence of fine aggregate and only consists of cement, water and coarse aggregates. Malaysia is a country that contributes palm oil development to increase the country capital in export field in the others country. However, palm oil industry also produces some kind of waste like as palm oil fly ash (POFA) and the problem wastage of palm oil industry was increasing in landfill. In addition, not only in Malaysia faced the problem of recycled bottle plastic but other countries also run into this problem that has been increase day by day. This study revealed the result of the use of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and Palm Oil Fly Ash (POFA) that has been mix in pervious concrete. The main objective of this study is to determine the compressive strength and ultrasonic pulse velocity of pervious concrete containing Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). There are 10 series of concrete mixes POFA) varied from 5 % , 10 % and 15% were used as the partial cement replacement material and percent of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) for every mix are 0.1%, 0.2%, & 0.3%, based on volume mould and water cement ratio that use is 0.5. The pervious concrete was tested its compressive strength and ultrasonic pulse velocity of PET and POFA- concretes due to 7 and 28 days of water curing ages. At the end of study, the optimum additional POFA was 10% with 0.3% use of PET shows high optimum value.
