To mitigate emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, it is necessary to develop alternative ways by which sustainable development can be improved. While creating paper different squanders are turns out from the different procedures in paper ventures. The primer waste from paper industry is named as hypo sludge. In this study the material obtained from the paper industry waste (hypo sludge) is partially replaced with Portland cement at different replacement levels. The properties of concrete was investigated which includes workability, setting time, compressive strength and optimum percentage of hypo sludge as supplementary cementations material (SCM) is also determined. This dissertation discusses various combination of cement with hypo sludge in concrete. Earlier study shows that hypo sludge is very rich in lime content and thus it works as a partial replacement material in concrete. Past studies also shows that the presence of silica, magnesium and calcium in hypo sludge makes it similar to that of cement and hence there is a possibility to replace cement with hypo sludge. The Hypo sludge can minimize the demand for cement and reduce the construction cost. This dissertation deals with experimental investigations to evaluate the optimum percentage of hypo sludge to be used for manufacturing concrete. M30 and M40 grade of concrete were used in this study. Different percentage of hypo sludge i.e. 3%, 5%, 7%, 10% and 12% is replaced by OPC cement of 43 grades. The outcome demonstrates that the quality of the solid increments by adding hypo sludge up to 10%. Be that as it may, additionally increment in hypo sludge diminishes the compressive strength.
