Abstract: Leaving the waste products straight to the environment directly can cause environmental issues. Waste can be used as a mixture to create fresh products or can be used as admixtures .In order to make more efficient use of natural assets and protect the environment from waste deposits an inert material which is procured as an industrial by-product during sawing, grinding, and polishing of marble. These wastes can be used as concrete constituents by partly replacing the cement making it cost-effective. The main objective of this research is to examine whether there is any possibility of utilizing marble powder in concrete production or not. This research involves concrete m20 mixture by replacing cement with marble powder in different proportions (0%, 5 %, 10 % & 15 %) by weight to determine the optimum proportion of replacement. The properties of concrete such as compressive strength, flexural strength and modulus of elasticity were determined at age of 7 and 28 days. The durability characteristics of concrete with cement partially replaced by waste Marble powders were also evaluated.
