Foundry waste is a standout amongst the most dynamic examination ranges that envelop various orders including structural building and development materials. They can stand near the idea of green Concrete which is in perfect with the earth. Foundry sand from throwing commercial ventures is a waste material which is dumped widely and in this study an endeavor has been made to assess the use of this waste material in cement. The steady exhaustion of sand beds at all significant wellsprings of accessibility is a noteworthy concern and in this manner endeavors are taken keeping in mind the end goal to supplant sand in development exercises. In this study, impact of foundry sand as fine total substitution on the compressive strength of concrete with a M20 mix extent explored at various restricted curing periods (3 days, 7 day sand 28 days). The rate of foundry sand utilized for substitution were 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and 100% by weight of fine total. Test indicated great results, demonstrating ability of foundry sand for being a segment in cement for granting strength. Making concrete from reused materials spares vitality and preserves assets which lead to a safe maintainable environment.
