The quantities of component materials used for production of concrete are high on the global scale, therefore alternative materials are experimented on, in order to replace the natural ones. The possibility of using ground waste sulfur from the oil refining (petroleum) industry as a filling component of self-compacting concrete is presented in the paper, based on common concrete laboratory tests. The physical and mechanical properties of self-compacting concrete decrease to some extend due to use of ground sulfur, but this concrete remains useful for some building applications.
