|Demands for the replacement materials of cement have been increasing due to social problems such as CO₂ reduction and exhaustion of resource. Recently industrial by-products, for example GGBFS and fly ash, have been used as an admixture. However Studies on POFA have been insufficient. POFA, which is used in this study, was obtained from burning of palm oil shell and husk from a southern part of Malaysia. In this study, early compressive strength and porosity of cement mortar with POFA are measured, and appropriate fraction of POFA is 10%. In terms of porosity, POFA is used as a filer in mortar. Later, activity index of POFA and long-term experiments are needed.
