The development of Self-compacting concrete (SCC) was initiated in Japan in late 1980. SCC is understood for its self-consolidation and flows through narrow spaces in the formwork and does not require external vibration which has enhanced its acknowledgment over normal concrete, thus increasing the interest of researchers to focus on this building and construction material. A lot of research on SCC has been done in Japan, Turkey, Iran, United Kingdom, Algeria, Thailand, Malaysia, and India. Common industrial materials such as Limestone Powder (LP), Metakaolin (MK), Fly Ash (FA), Silica Fume (SF) and Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GBFS) have been used to increase the efficiency of SCC. There are also numerous options on recycle materials which can be utilized for the development of SCC. This paper focusses on the use of pozzolanic material like Metakaolin (MK) as a mineral admixture and non-pozzolanic material like Waste Marble Powder (WMP) as a filler material. Both types of materials have a positive effect on the fresh, hardened and durability state of SCC. The use of MK plays an important role in decreasing the environmental pollution by way of lesser carbon dioxide emissions. The use of WMP reduces the segregation, bleeding and cost of production of SCC. Therefore, this paper containing the valuable and significant information can provide a platform for the new researchers for future investigations on SCC. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
