Concrete values: In this study, we develop a new and interesting way of valorizing granite waste (GW) by using it as a supplementary material in cement-based mortars, which are among the most widely used products in building and civil engineering works. The physico-chemical and mineralogical characteristics of GW, and the physical and mechanical properties of the new formulated mortars, are studied. The valorized waste and the new mortar exhibit ability in the photodegradation of organic dye.
