This review discusses the potential of alkali-activated materials obtained from mineral waste. A brief histori-cal background on alkali-activated materials is presented. Recent advances in the development of binders obtained from mineral wastes and alkali-activated solutions are described. The scope of this state of the art review is to identify current knowledge in support that mineral waste can be used for the production of alkali-activated binders. In addition, this review identifies the chemical activators that can be effectively utilized for such purposes in the age when wastes are still viewed by industry as disposable. Some mineral wastes which are discussed can be viewed as a new resource for recycling and recovery which will offer important economic and social benefits.
