India, one of the leading producers of ordinary Portland cement in the world and also leads top place in consumption of natural resources to produce OPC. During production of OPC harmful gases are liberated into atmosphere and cause ozone layer depletion and gives signs to global warming effects. Due to the rapid growth in industrialization there is a huge requirement of OPC and natural aggregate in shape of fine and coarse aggregate to meet the need of construction industry leads to environmental pollution due to over utilization of natural resources and liberating of CO2 in to the atmosphere. As a part of reducing environmental pollution a step is laid by Davidovits in the production of concrete without OPC as a binder material. Present paper gives a brief review on properties of Geopolymer concrete produced with available alternate materials without consuming natural resources in huge volume.
