Paper Pulp, Cement, Concrete


Environmental problems are growing due to release of CO2 in the construction process of cement, it is producing harmful effects on environment. And also shortage of conventional construction materials such as cement, gravels and sand is increasing, because of the higher growth in construction work. Hence alternates are strongly required for these materials. An ordinary Portland cement is caused to five to seven percent of total green house gases emission, so alternative of cement is required for construction of concrete. 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 paper pulp is also useful for construction of concrete as a fine aggregate. Paper pulp contains low calcium and minimum amount of silica, because of this silica and magnesium paper pulp can be used like cement, paper pulp reduces cost of concrete and also it improves the strength of concrete. This study explains the application of paper pulp as a substitute for binding material in concrete. This paper reviews the performance properties of paper pulp in concrete. Paper pulp can be used as a effective building material.
