Municipal solid waste incineration generates large quantities of bottom ash that should be recycled. Current use of municipal solid waste incineration bottom ash (MSWI-BA) in cementitious materials is mostly in Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). This paper considers using MSWI-BA as sand substitution in Calcium Sulfoaluminate Cement (CSA) as an alternative to OPC. A comparison between OPC and CSA mortars containing 0–2 mm MSWI-BA is conducted. The MSWI-BA used was treated to remove the ferrous and non-ferrous metals in order to obtain a better mineral fraction. Different percentages (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%) of standard sand were substituted by MSWI-BA based on equivalent volume. Experimental results showed that the compressive strength and porosity of the CSA mortars were superior to OPC after substitution at 1, 7, 28, and 90 days. The compressive strength of OPC mortars with 25% substitution decreased by 40% compared to 11% for CSA mortars at 90 days. This is due to the difference in pH between the two cement pastes as OPC in contact with the MSWI-BA leads to a reaction with the aluminum content which releases hydrogen gas, increases the porosity, and decreases the compressive strength.
