Many researchers have investigated the use of copper slag in the production of cement, mortar and concrete as raw materials for clinker, cement replacement, coarse and fine aggregates. The use of copper slag in cement and concrete provides potential environmental as well as economic benefits for all related industries, particularly in areas where a considerable amount of copper slag is produced. This project report reviews the characteristics of copper slag and its effects on the engineering properties of cement, mortars and concrete. By using the copper slag in construction field, the chance of getting pollution due to copper slag will be reduced and it will be the cost effective method for any construction industry.
