Abstract

In present day scenario, global warming is its peak due to emission of greenhouse gasses. In the concrete industry, cement plays a vital role in production of CO2. Due to increased cement production, cement manufacturing industries have become the largest contributors of CO2 emission, which severely affects the environment. Hence it is necessary to find an alternative and sustainable replacement for cement in concrete. Geopolymer is one of the replacement for cement in concrete. So, we have taken Fly ash, Metakaolin, and Silica fume. We also used sodium silicate and sodium hydroxide solution as alkaline activator. It was used to make cube and morter cube. In which the cube and morter cubes are tested. In this paper we will discuss about compressive strength of the concrete. In which we will discuss about the different tests we conducted and discuss about workability of concrete.
