The aim of this study was to utilize ethyl cellulose, a mixture of waste engine oil and waste vegetable oil as a binder in the environmental friendly roofing tile production.The waste engine-vegetable oil was mix together with ethyl cellulose, fly ash, coarse aggregates, fine aggregates and a catalyst. The Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) analysis showed that the oil mixture added with ethyl cellulose has the relatively high binding effect due to the presence of strong carbonyl group especially after being heat cured at 1900Cfor 24 hours. The mixed proportion of materials with different amount of ethyl cellulose used was studied in the production of tile specimen. The results showed that the ethyl cellulose composed roofing tile specimens passed the transverse breaking strength, durability, permeability and the ultraviolet accelerated test. The shrinkage on the tile can be overcome by adding temperature resistance polymer on the exterior of the tile.
