Effluent from the Rice Mills, Cement Concrete Replacing Potable Water

Abstract

the aim of this investigation is to evaluate the feasibility and rise the strength of the concrete by utilizing the rice mill effluent as 100% replacement for potable water. India is second largest rice producing country in this world. Rice is the substantial food for all 65% of the population in India. Paddy in its raw from cannot be consumed human beings. So it undergoes basic rice milling process in this pre cleaning is the first step here water is utilized for cleaning the raw materials. This waste water can be utilized for the construction field may reduce the water scarcity problem. Nowadays utilization of industrial waste has encouraged in the construction field. The replacement of potable water by rice mill effluent provides higher strength and durability to the concrete. The mix proportion is developed for M30 grade of concrete. The hardened properties of concrete like compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength are performed The test results are nearly equal to that of the conventional concrete.
