This research emphasizes the development and material characterization of non-proprietary ultra-high-performance concretes (UHPC) using recycled glass powder (RGP) and other suitable local available materials, found in the New England area in the United States. About 10 UHPC pastes and 12 fiber reinforced UHPCs were investigated. The results were compared to two commercial UHPC mixtures, available in the United States. This research showed that UHPC with RGP can be designed to achieve compressive strength of 156 MPa (22.6 ksi) to 178 MPa (25.8 ksi) without the use of special treatment, at current material cost of about US$550/m3 without fibers and in between US$800 to US$1140/m3 with the use of fibers available in the US.
