Depletion of natural resources, environmental concerns and rising costs of solid by-products disposal are forcing engineers to find viable alternative solutions to the demand for construction materials. Phosphogypsum, the gypsum by-product of the phosphate industry, abundantly available wherever there is production of phosphoric acid, was used in this research project as a partial replacement for fine aggregate in portland cement mortar. Laboratory data as well as practical application examples are given.
