Countries like India and China are facing problem of pollution due to large construction works in recent times. Ordinary Portland cement which is used in Concrete releases plethora of carbon dioxide (CO2) in atmosphere during manufacturing. This leads to increase of level of greenhouse gases and hence contributes in global warming. Material like Geo polymer concrete is best alternative for this problem .Concrete is the most versatile, indispensable and widely used building material, of which cement is an integral constituent. From the time immemorial, Portland cement has been used as binder in concrete construction. However, the production of the cement is not eco-friendly and consumes enormous amount of energy which ultimately leads to the depletion of the fossil fuel reserve. In addition to this, it emits noxious greenhouse gases which are harmful for the biosphere.. This paper presents an experimental study of compressive and flexural strength of concrete prepared with Ordinary Portland Cement, partially replaced by ground granulated blast furnace slag in different proportions varying from 0% to 50% of GGBS Concrete.
