Reducing the use of cement usage in construction Industry – Need of the hour

Author : Shree Laxmi Prashanth 1 2

Date of Publication :17th August 2017

Abstract: Concrete is a versatile building material that has been used extensively for infrastructure development since past many decades. However cement, the key ingredient that is used to bind the other ingredient is not a ecofriendly material, since the manufacturing of cement releases harmful greenhouse gases. This paper represents state of the art on alternative materials that can be used as replacement to cement. The paper also highlights potential of alternative materials that can be used as an alternative to cement as a binder. Compressive strength being the major requirement of the concrete, the paper focuses on strength development of various alternative binders. Durability cannot be neglected although, the durability aspect of the binders ae also mentioned herewith.
