Abstract

Concrete plays an important role in construction industry since a few decades past here in Malaysia. The decreasing limitation in utilizing nature resources such as timber for building construction has contributed to the increasing of these materials cost on the market. Hence, the concrete growing to be the main materials for construction industry in the recent days. As the modernization is developed to promote the transition of nation; the country development urges the construction industry to a green technology. Hence, some new buildings are built, and the old building must be planned in terms of its continuous usability. These resulting to the demolition of buildings that contribute to a construction waste. Majorly of the waste are a concrete waste; but some of construction industry employ this waste as the new building materials. However still much of this waste is deutilized. As for that, other method that can employ the construction waste as one of an innovative medium to make it useful is filtration. The vertical aerated recycle concrete aggregate filter; as per named utilized the concrete waste as its main materials used in the filtration system. Its main focuses in enhancing a phosphorus removal in a water that give effects on water quality in long terms. This research finds that the efficiency of the filtration system process in phosphorus enhancement is around 50 percent from the original content. Hence, a further research on utilizing the recycle concrete aggregate in a filtration system should be developed as it overcome the concrete waste issue and also water supply issue in Malaysia
