    It is well known that concrete material in building construction is in high demand due to its many advantages which therefore makes concrete the most essential material in construction. However, the materials used in the concrete mix have harmful effects on the earth. For instance, cement industries are the primary producer of CO 2. Likewise, the high usage of aggregate in concrete reduces the natural resources. Therefore, a replacement for the concrete ingredients starts taking a place where Ceramic Waste Powder (CWP) is one of the substitutions. In this research, CWP was used as partial replacement of cement and fine aggregate. Two percentages of replacement were considered in this study: 20 and 30%. Subsequently, an experimental work has been conducted to check the effect of this partial replacement on the mechanical properties and the cost of the new concrete products. At the end of this work, it can be observed that using CWP in concrete produces a high strength concrete with a lower cost which makes the new product green and sustainable for the future trend of sustainable cities.
