This paper investigates the characteristic of cenosphere derived from fly ash collected from Malaysia power plant. The current trends on the reuse on cenosphere has been reviewed and various characteristic properties of cenosphere were presented and compared with cenosphere from Malaysia power plant. Fly ash was collected from Jimah, Manjung and Kapar power plant and was processed to extract the cenosphere. Cenosphere was undergo chemical composition test, particle size distribution identification, surface morphology and crystallographic structure in order to study the characteristic. Cenosphere were found to have smooth surface and a spherical morphology with high amount of silicon dioxide and aluminum oxide. Cenospheres will give a huge effect potential due to the unique properties, where it will be amenable to a wide range of industrial applications used in the engineering industry, highway engineering, oil and gas industry, foundry engineering as well as the chemical industry.
