Concrete hollow blocks (CHBs) are frequently employed as construction materials for the construction of interior and exterior walls. To make a CHB, the construction industries use cement, aggregates, sand, and water. Cement undergoes a process of solidification, forming a strong connection with other materials to effectively unify them. However, cement can also be a cause for environmental and health problems to the people because of carbon dioxide emissions. In this paper, the researchers utilize residual chicken bones as an alternate partial replacement of cement in CHBs. The assessment of the compressive strength of CHBs, with or without the incorporation of residual chicken bones is the main objective of this study. To determine the differences of the CHBs in terms of compressive strength, the samples have various percentages which are: 0%, 1%, 2%, and 3% of residual chicken bones that will partially replace the cement. With the use of oneway ANOVA, the concrete hollow blocks mixed with and without residual chicken bones were analyzed. After analyzing, the result of the concrete hollow blocks with residual chicken bones had higher compressive strength than the standard CHB, which it has significant difference. To confirm this, the concrete hollow blocks with 2% residual chicken bones has the highest compressive strength of all the samples. However, the inclusion of more than 2% of residual chicken bones in CHBs results in a decreasing of their compressive strength.
