Abstract: The primary aim of this study is to investigate the influence of using glass dust as an additional in conventional concrete material on the properties of fresh and hardened concrete. Soil pollution happen when non-biodegradable materials disposed into land. However, the used of this nonbiodegradable can do wonder for construction purposes. This is due to the non- biodegradable materials which cannot be broken down to simple organic molecules by micro-organisms. Glass dust is one of the example of non- biodegradable. Nowadays, the used of this dust becoming more popular due to its properties. In this study, the glass dust which consist of silica has being used as an additional ingredients to concrete cement. The concentrations of the glass has being varies to determine the mechanical properties e.g. compressive strength of M35 grade concrete. The variation of glass dust are from 10, 20 and 30%. The compressive strength of concrete cubes is tested after 7 and 14 days. The outcomes of the study are presented in tables and graphs.
