Abstract

Sustainability, or sustainable development in concrete and construction industry, is aimed at improving the quality of life for everyone, now and for the next generations. It encompasses environmental, economic and social dimensions. The future challenge for the construction industry in India is clearly to meet the growing needs for infrastructure development and housing while at the same time limiting the impact of its burdens in CO2 emissions due to construction by drastic improvements in the use of alternative materials in construction and supplementary cementing materials as partial replacements to OPC. Cement and steel production almost 19-20 % of CO2 gas emissions in India. Due to exponential growing in urbanization and industrialization, byproducts from the steel industries such as GGBS are becoming an increasing concern for recycling and waste management. At same time, studies have revealed usage of GGBS in concrete as a partial replacement for OPC have increased the compressive strength, tensile strength, durability and decreases the permeability, embodied energy.
