Abstract: Increased development has an impact on increasing material requirements and environmental pollution due to waste. Material needs must consider the energy-saving aspects and the thought of useless material to be useful, one of which is a crystalline ceramic waste. The crystalline ceramic waste is very sharp and hard. The utilization of crystalline ceramic waste as a concrete panel material is very important to reduce environmental pollution. The purpose of this research was to utilize crystalline ceramic waste as a concrete panel material and test its flexural capacity. Panel testing was carried out on specimens measuring 30 mm x 400 mm x 800 mm assuming the panel as a deep beam on simple support. Testing is done by a three-point bending flexural test method. Loading is carried out monotonically until the panel collapses. From the results of the ceramic concrete panel test showed that the flexural strength increased by 31.89% compared to the flexural strength of normal concrete panels.
