The higher growth in construction work leads to shortage of conventional construction materials such as cement, gravels and sand. Hence alternates are strongly required for these materials. At the present time researchers searched some substitute for these materials such as fly ash, blast furnace slag, silica fume, rice husk ash, etc apart from this the recent studies research has show that the waste paper sludge (waste from paper industries) is also useful for construction of concrete as a fine aggregate. It contains low calcium and minimum amount of silica, because of this silica and magnesium waste paper sludge can be used like cement, they improve the setting of concrete. Waste paper sludge reduces cost of concrete and also it improves the strength of concrete. This study explains the use of waste paper sludge as a substitute of fine aggregate in concrete.
