A modern lifestyle, alongside the advancement of technology has led to an increase in the amount and type of waste being generated, leading to a waste disposal crisis. Considerable economic as well as environmental benefits can be achieved when appropriate industrial waste management is implemented. Unsustainable trend in waste generation is a cause for concern because the generation of waste can be a symptom of environmentally inefficient use of resources. Therefore, development of new technologies to recycle and convert waste materials into reusable materials is critically important for protection of our environment and sustainable development of our society. Properly planned use of conventional materials and the industrial by-products alleviates a number of environmental problems. This paper therefore presents a comprehensive review of available literature on attempts at beneficial reuses of fly ash (FA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS), in an effort to provide a compendium of recent and past developments, and update our current state of knowledge.
