In this article, it is investigated how the increase in aluminum chips ratio affects the spread diameter, flexural strength, compressive strength and electrical conductivity of fly ash basis (UA) series and blast furnace slag based (YA) series aluminum chips reinforced geopolymer mortars. It was observed that there was a decrease of 11.29% in spread diameter for the UA series from UAO to UA15, while the YA series showed a decrease of 19.62%. The increase in aluminum chip waste content resulted in a significant decrease in flexural strength and compressive strength of the material. Furthermore, it was stated that the increase in the aluminum chips ratio had an effect on the electrical conductivity of the material. Samples produced with blast furnace slag had lower resistivity and higher electrical conductivity than samples produced with fly ash. The importance of aluminum waste and aluminum shavings ratio in terms of sustainability was emphasized. The recycling and reuse of waste aluminum contributes to energy savings and reduction of environmental impact, while at the same time prolonging the life of materials and conserving natural resources. As a result, it was seen that the increase in the aluminum chip ratio had a significant effect on the material properties. It was concluded that careful management of aluminum waste, promoting recycling processes and evaluating alternative production methods are a critical step in achieving sustainability goals.
