This research paper analyses the performance of new blended cements containing 10 and 20 % ceramic sanitary ware (SW) and construction and demolition waste (C&DW) to determine their suitability as future supplementary cementitious materials for commercial cement manufacture. The effect of these recycled materials on cement rheology was studied and an analysis of covariance was run to quantify the impact of each factor. The addition of ceramic waste reduced shear yield stress, whereas construction and demolition waste (C&DW) had the opposite effect, raising yield stress. These behavioural differences between the two types of industrial waste would have a direct effect on the final applications of the resulting blended cement.
