Given the large number of natural fibers simply being burned and discarded like trash, the idea of using them in partial replacement of fine aggregate in structural concrete or as composite reinforcements has grown in recent years. The sawdust is abundant and have motivated their use to be a product of little use, where its main purpose would be before disposal. It is low cost yet enabling economic viability. This paper presents a study designed to employ a sustainable destination to sawdust, replacing part of the raw material in the production of concrete in civil production and performing compression tests on the resulting product. The results regarding the mechanical behavior and appearance were satisfactory, the subject of further analysis to improvement product.
