The article is devoted to the description of the current state of knowledge about the possibilities of sustainable use of granite powder waste for manufacturing of cementitious composites. Granite powder waste is waste material resulting from the treatment of granite stone. In dry form, it is harmful to the environment and causes its degradation. One way to reduce its harmful effects is to use it for the sustainable production of cement composites and to use it as supplementary cementitious

These results were compared and research gaps related to these studies were indicated. In summary, conclusions have been pointed out that indicate that granite powder waste can potentially be used as supplementary cementitious material, but comprehensive, comprehensive research related to this additive should also be carried out.
