Cement is the most commonly used construction material on the planet. Its production plants are emitting approximately 7 percent of worldwide human-produced carbon dioxide [1]. As a result, minimizing cement usage and finding alternative materials that can partially substitute cement while still improving concrete performance have become crucial. Ceramic tiles are an important building material in this industry. Approximately 2% to 5% of tiles are wasted during the manufacturing, handling, and transportation of tiles. At first, people have started unloading such waste materials close by their plant in open land, and due to its current circumstance, and land gets contaminated. Consequently, the usage of such waste materials is fundamental for the business and climate. This paper presents the consequences of tests performed to inspect the impact of Tiles waste powder on the strength and permeability of M30 grade concrete. The Ceramic Tiles Powder (CTP) was replaced by 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% of the cement. We had cast 5 types of concrete mixes utilizing various percentages of CTP. Compressive strength, Tensile strength, Water absorption, Water Permeability, and RCPT tests were performed. The results of the tests show that by replacing cement with Ceramic Tiles Powder, the concrete`s strength and durability were increased. At 28 days, the maximum compressive and tensile strength obtained with 10% replacement of cement was 12.19 percent and 7.32 percent, respectively. The maximum reduction in water permeability coefficient Kw and Chloride ion permeability is found 21.68% and is 18% respectively at 28 days, indicating that the concrete is more durable. The outcome is that 10% cement substitution with CTP is an ideal concentration that benefits the concrete of the grade M30.
