An enormous amount of industrial waste is generated annually by India's manufacturing sector, and unless resources are efficiently conserved and managed, this problem will continue to worsen. This waste contains nearly a million tons of ceramic debris. India accounts for over 6% of global manufacturing, and currently ranks third in terms of consumption. Similarly, a significant amount of waste is generated after tile utilization, and its disposal poses a challenge. With extensive construction and infrastructure development, natural sand is rapidly being depleted from water sources. This research proposes a suitable replacement for fine aggregates by effectively utilizing ceramic waste powder in concrete, which can address the issues of fine aggregate replenishment and the disposal of broken ceramic tiles.
