Malaysia is well known as the main waste products procedure in the world. Million tons of waste products is being produced every year with no commercial return on it such as Eggshell Powder (ESP) and Palm Oil Fuel ash (POFA). Nowadays, many researchers are trying to utilizes major waste products such as eggshell Powder (ESP) and Palm Oil Fuel Ash (POFA) to improve the properties of the concretes. The development and use of blended cement is growing rapidly in the construction industry mainly due to considerations of cost saving, energy saving, environmental protection and conservation of resources. Demand for the high durability and environmental friendly nowadays developed POFA and eggshell powder as an alternative material to cement in construction field. The use of POFA and eggshell powder to replace the portion of the cement has result significant saving in the cost of cement production. Thus, this study will show the possibilities of ESP and POFA as a cement replacement of the concrete. The main purpose of this study is to enhance the mechanical properties of the concrete after the various percentage of ESP and POFA were being used as cement replacement.
