Abstract

There is a growing awareness in India about extensive damage being caused to the environment due to accumulation of waste materials from industrial plants, power houses, colliery pits and demolition sites and it has become one of the major environmental, economical and social issues. Waste material is the material unused, unwanted and rejected as worthless into the environment in our society as whole. Waste materials coming out of industry nowadays is posing a great environmental problem in disposing them into the air, water and on the land. But, with proper utilization of these materials in construction industry as well as in making road pavements will greatly help the society to have a better and pleasant environment. Substitution of waste materials will conserve dwindling resources, and will avoid the environmental and ecological damages caused by quarrying and exploitation of the raw materials for making cement. These waste materials can partly be used, or processed, to produce materials suitable as aggregates or fillers in concrete. Use of waste products is not only a partial solution to environmental and ecological problems and it significantly improves the microstructure, and consequently the properties of concrete. The output of these waste materials in India are more than double the production of cement and other construction material used in all the civil engineering activities. So, use of waste materials not only to make the cement concrete (generally used in all the construction activities) less expensive, but to provide a blend of tailored properties of waste materials and portland cements suitable for specified purpose. This paper outlines regarding the optimum utilization of waste materials in some construction activities as a green concept, which ultimately reduces the environmental pollution.
