Abstract: A mixture of cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water is term as Concrete. Concrete is key in the development of infrastructure viz. Buildings, industrial structures, bridges and highways etc. Concrete is most commonly used in all types of construction with an annual production exceeding 2 billion metric tons per year. But the production of raw material of concrete has certain detrimental effects on the environment. Worlds 8% to 10% of total CO2 emission come from the manufacture of cement. Therefore, the main aim of project is to reduced amount of cement by replacing it with GGBS to the optimum level so that energy required for cement production can be saved and during production of cement emission of greenhouse gases like CO2 takes place which leads to air pollution will be minimized with use of GGBS (Ground Granular Blast Furnace Slag). Also, to check compressive strength, Tensile strength and Flexural strength of concrete by replacing cement with different percentage of GGBS.
