The hypo sludge is a waste material obtained from paper industry. Since, paper is not recyclable for long time, the disposal of hypo sludge poses potential threat on environment. Hypo sludge contains certain chemicals which are observed to have cementitious properties, hence, hypo sludge is useful for partially replacing cement in concrete. In present study, the hypo sludge is used to replace cement in cement concrete in varying amount. The effect of amount of hypo sludge on cement concrete is studied by testing for slump and compressive strength. The empirical relations are developed for compressive strength based on experimental data.
