The construction sector, which forms the basis of the industrial and housing needs triggered by the increasing population, is a market with intense material consumption. Widely used in the construction industry, concrete is a composite building material obtained by combining different materials. The reduction of cement consumption, which is the basic and most expensive component of concrete, in concrete design, provides both economic and environmental benefits. In this study, the usability of volcanites (Tuff, Pumice) and weathering product of limestone/dolomitic limestone (Terra Rossa) which are abundant in Afyon and Kütahya regions, as natural mineral additives in concrete production was investigated. The workability and strength performance of these materials, which are used at the ratios of 10%, 20% and 30% instead of cement in the concrete mixture, have been compared with the reference mixture. Workability in concretes using pumice has decreased by 15%; compressive strength has decreased up to 40% in concretes using tuff. It was seen from the results that the strength performance was positively affected, especially in older ages.
