This paper presents about the utilization of Oleo chemical waste in production of brick by replacement weight of cement partially. The production of brick by using cement, water, sand and waste depends on the rates of replacement. The rates of replacement used for this research are 0%, 5% and 10%. Oleo Chemical waste is collected from Oleo Chemical Industry that processing Palm oil. Oleo Chemical Industry produce a lot of product such as soap, detergent, shampoo and others. In addition of this paper, the preparation of Oleo chemical waste must be done before mixing. The Oleo chemical waste need to be dry in oven for 24 hours, grind and sieve. The total specimen of brick are 45 samples. This paper will investigate the potential of waste in three different test which are Compressive strength test, Flexural strength test and Water Absorption test for 7th and 28th days of curing. The method of curing used in this research is water curing method. The results shows that the strength is lower than the control brick. The cement brick also absorb low water when add more Oleo Chemical Sludge in dry condition. This research is very important to our country due to the demand of construction material and recycling waste was higher due to the growth in terms of development country. This created a need for the development material with a suitable utilization of waste. However, in a same time, it also produces a lot of waste. All the waste will be thrown away to the landfill. In a long time period, the waste will cause a pollution. However, the causes of pollution not only come by waste, but the production of cement in cement manufacturing is also another factor of pollution. Malaysia have a National Policy on the Environment (DASN) is to ensure the quality life. The objectives of the National Policy Environment (DASN) are to have a clean, safe, healthy and productive environment for us and our future generation. In order to prevent the problems and to achieve the National Policy on Environment, this in one of the initiative to reuse this waste as a one of the construction material. Before this, there is no research about utilization of Oleo Chemical waste in construction materials. Thus, in this research will explore the utilization of Oleo Chemical waste as a partial cement replacement in cement brick.
