Experimental Study on Sustainable Production of Concrete with Treated Alum Sludge

Research Project


A huge amount of unwanted sludge is produced daily from water and wastewater treatment plants and disposed into landfills which causes numerous environmental challenges. This study aims to investigate the effect of replacing cement by alum sludge on the performance of normal concrete. Incorporating alum sludge in concrete production could be useful in protecting the environment by reducing the volume of alum sludge in landfill.
