It is the objective of this project is to investigate the mechanical and chemical behaviour of new concrete type obtained by adding aluminium dross which is an impure aluminium mixture that results from metals melting and mixing with flux. The main advantage of this type of concrete over the conventional ones is the reduction in the quantity of raw materials. The results of this study indicate that aluminium dross can be used as an ingredient in the range of certain limits to improve expanded concrete/mortar and to improve the corrosion resistivity of concrete/mortar. The most interesting finding was that aluminium dross accelerates the setting time of concrete/mortar. Because of these findings it is suggested that aluminium slag added concrete/mortar may be used in the manufacturing of buildings subfloors, panels, blocks etc.
