In today's ever-evolving construction business environmental protection issues are of crucial importance.Tight restrictions, being gradually introduced, aimed at reducing human intervention in the surrounding environment, result in the need for the production and use of environmentally friendly building products. One of them is the cement with the addition of nanometric titanium dioxide called TioCem®. It is a hydraulic binder characterized by photocatalytic properties.The paper presents the results of a study of TioCem®-based concrete for possible use in production of eco-friendly concrete sett paving stones.

Keywords: TioCem®, eco-friendly concrete sett paving stones, compressive strength, frost resistance.
