Paper Title:
Use of Local Raw Materials for Construction Purposes
  Abstract

A geopolymer produced from Jordanian kaolinite is described in this work. The aim is to produce low environmental impact materials from local raw materials. In this paper the emphasis is on the general characteristics of the material and on its durability. With the used kaolinite, specimens with compressive strength of 41 MPa under dry conditions and 23 MPa under immersed water conditions were obtained. The durability under environmental conditions was good.
