Abstract: Concrete is currently the world’s biggest consumer product that uses natural resources such as sand, crushed stone, and water. Research is under way today to decrease consumption of these materials, due to the depletion of these natural resources for concretion. The fast building growth in India led to a lack of standard building materials. The amount of concrete used and the accessibility of raw material in a developed country such as India are much lower. Ceramics produce wastes inevitably in the ceramic industry, regardless of improved processes; around 15%-30% of production is waste output. The ceramic industry dumps waste in all surrounding storage or empty regions close to the facility, although reported locations are labelled for discarding. The pollution of the dust and the occupation of a broad area of soil is caused by serious environmental contamination especially after the powder is dry. Ceramic dust is the most important waste from the ceramic industry. This paper investigates concrete strength features through fractional substitution of fine aggregates with ceramic powder. The fine aggregate was partly combined with ceramic powders in the current experimental study for M25 concrete grade. The tests were performed with 10 percent, 30 percent, 40 percent, 50 percent substitution of fine aggregates with ceramic powder by weight and 28 days of strength testing to evaluate the mechanical characteristics i.e.; compression, tension, and flexural behavior. The optimum proportion of ceramic powder addition is evaluated in view of the mechanical requirements of concrete
