Abstract:

In today’s scenario, availability of natural resources is diminishing and simultaneously the waste generation due to cutting and polishing of stones is increasing considerably. Incorporation of these mining waste materials into construction process can provide a respite from both these issues. The waste generated from granite waste from mining industries are having texture similar to that of river sand, so it will be very beneficial for the environment to reutilize this waste for construction works. In this paper a review of contemporary practices of use of granite waste in different civil engineering applications has been done.
