Alternatives to normal concrete (NC) have been investigated heavily in the last decade, Sulfur concrete is one of the promising substitutes as it works as a binder that replaces the use of cement and water to form a more sustainable option. The objective of this case study was to investigate the effect of using carbide lime waste as aggregate to produce sulfur-based concrete. To achieve this, characterization of the mix components was done after that the mechanical properties of sulfur concrete proportioned with various aggregate types were evaluated. Results revealed that the use of fillers enhanced the properties of the mix and that the mix illustrated superior mechanical properties. Moreover, the study recommended further research to prove the durability of the mix.
