Currently, marble waste is valued by incorporating powders, obtained by drying and grinding sludge resulting from marble blocks cutting operation, or the aggregates, obtained by crushing the solid waste, on self-compacting concrete. These two procedures require a lot of energy. This experimental and theoretical work focuses on the direct incorporation of marble sludge in self-compacting concrete. The first part needs the study of the rheological behavior of the marble sludge grout (MSG) as a function of the added water amount. For this, different grouts were prepared and tested by varying the water/sludge ratio. In the second part, four self-compacting concretes (SCCs) were mixed with MSG having different water/sludge ratios in order to validate a new technique of gassing self-compacting concrete with MSG. The test results show that the marble grains of grout is totally dispersed when the water/sludge ratio was equal to 1.2. The results also show that the gassing with MSG allows us to obtain SCC having both self-compacting property and self-leveling property compared to SCC made by adding marble filler to the cementitious matrix.
