Abstract: The growing demand for cement products, as well as the idea of sustainable development supports the research of alternative materials that could be a partial substitute for cement. One of potential materials is fly ash and many other sources of pozzolanic materials, which application in cement-based materials have been well documented. This work presents the influence of sugar cane bagasse ash (SCBA) on the properties of cellulose-cement materials. Two types of SCBA, obtained by different processing, were investigated Bending strength tests and tests of physical properties were carried out on composites samples with two types of sugarcane bagasse ash. On the basis of the tests was claimed that the addition of sugar cane bagasse ash reduces the density of the composite, as well as increases porosity and water absorption. The increase of bending strength of composites was obtained after accelerated aging cycles. Obtained results show the possibility of application the sugar cane bagasse ash in the cellulose-cement composites according to the idea of sustainable development.
