Abstract: This paper communicates organized work on copper slag drawn from scientific literature which comprises evaluation of physical and chemical characteristics, mechanical and durability properties in the marine environment. Analysis of test data derived from previously available sources reveals that copper slag having similar basic characteristics is an acceptable alternative material to river sand to produce concrete of all grades. The lesser water absorption property of copper slag is very significant peculiarity which attributes to develop high strength in concrete. The behaviour of concrete produced using copper slag to the concrete made corresponding to sand component shows identical behaviour in the fresh and hardened states. As an aggregate, copper slag has an ability to be replaced with fine aggregate, thereby the advance progress in the concrete technology will revolutionize the mixture of different conventional ingredients to uplift the expected properties of concrete to renew its definition. Hence, alternative materials to be used as fine aggregate will reduce the burden on the environment which is being extensively investigated all over the world looking to the significant requirements, quality and properties which have been a global consensus on the materials. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd 2021.
