Abstract: The enthusiasm for creating a lightweight material has been the subject of a study tested by both researchers and specialists. Testing in creating lightweight concrete reduces density while maintaining quality and without negatively impacting cost. Combining new aggregates with a general mixing scheme is a typical way to reduce the thickness of concrete. Use of natural aggregate in such a rate leads to a question about the preservation of natural aggregates sources. In addition, operations associated with aggregate extraction and processing are the principal causes of environmental concerns. In light of this, in the contemporary civil engineering construction, using alternative materials in place of natural aggregate in concrete production makes concrete as sustainable and environmentally friendly construction material. Coconut shell is one of the main contributors of pollution problem as an agricultural waste. Coconut shell used as coarse aggregate in concrete encouraged sustainable and environmentally helpful material in the construction field. The main concern of this research is the environment, and the construction and building technology to improve natural world and building materials.
