Marble dust (MD) is associate degree inert powdered material that is incurred as associate degree industrial by-product throughout sawing, sprucing, and shaping of marble which makes a reason of a heavy downside to the surroundings. Earlier analysis conjointly indicate that the consequences of blending marble dust on the different properties of cement like setting times, consistency as well as soundness stay at intervals the appropriate ranges of various standards. It’s been used as a replacement of fine aggregates as well as course aggregate in several literature works however this paper presents the practicability of the cheaper production of concrete with dust of marble in place of cement. The workability as well as compressive strength of concrete is often accrued by the addition of waste marble in place of cement as well as marble granules in place of fine aggregate. The workability, strength as well as durability of concrete modified with marble dust and marble granules are investigated by many researchers. These types of production of concrete with MD also lead to innovation of cheaper production of concrete. It also leads to decrease in hazard caused by MD in surrounding atmospheres as well on agriculture land. This paper also provides a scope for more research which is a requisite to design more reliable and more long-lasting concrete with marble dust.

Keywords: Cement, Marble dust, Marble Granules, Workability, Setting times.
