The amendment of cementitious binders with waste materials aids as a path to reduce the volume of waste and carbon emission. This review summarizes the current state of practice for cementitious binder fabrication in favor to the utilization of waste materials such as waste concrete powder (WCP), coal bottom ash (CBA) and steel slags. These materials have the potential to be employed as cementitious material, however much of the application is still up to the laboratory scale. This manuscript will serve as the support to understand the utilization of mentioned waste as nontraditional cementitious products. The highlighted areas likely need more refinement and research with indication on possible negative impact on application of wastes. The use of the aforementioned wastes for blending with OPC (ordinary Portland cement) can reduce carbon emissions from cement manufacturing. Additionally, it can also reduce the use of natural resources during clinker production.
