Oil palm industry is one of the biggest industries in Malaysia and produces considerable quantities of waste every year. Reusing the oil palm shell (OPS) waste as coarse aggregate in concrete contributes to an environmental friendly lightweight aggregate concrete (LWAC). LWAC tends to be more brittle than conventional concrete, however, adding natural fiber i.e. kenaf helps strengthen and improve the ductility of the OPS LWAC concrete. This makes KENcrete an attractive green material to be used in the construction industry.
