After marble production in marble factories, a significant amount of marble powder called marble waste, is formed. It is possible to improve the strength and durability properties of concrete by using these marble wastes formed after production in concrete mixtures. In addition, by using this waste material in concrete mixtures, it becomes possible to use this material effectively and to bring it to the economy. In addition to this, as a result of using the waste marble powder by replacing it with cement, the amount of CO2 greenhouse gas released into the air during cement production significantly decreases. As a result, a more sustainable concrete production is ensured by minimizing the environmental damage caused by cement production. In this study, a literature review was made and the effect of marble powder on the strength and durability properties of concrete was investigated by using as a fine material into concrete. As a result of the conflict, evaluations will be made on the results of the usability of marble dust wastes in concrete mixtures
