Most of these research works focused the effects of solid wastes on the physical and mechanical properties of construction products. Some of those studies attempted to investigate the durability performance of several construction materials including solid wastes. However, more research is needed to confirm the beneficial effects of solid wastes on the key properties and durability of new construction products. In this context, the following research needs have been identified for further investigation to enforce the use of solid wastes in construction materials:.
