Abstract

The concrete made by the eco-friendly industrial waste products is called as Green Concrete .This concrete has better performance and cycle sustainability .This technology is result of various efforts that have been conducted by researchers to reach at some alternatives that effectively are able to reduce high energy consumption and drastic environmental impacts during the production of cement .The production of green concrete does not alter the environment .The concept of green concrete comes under sustainable development .This concept of green concrete reduces the consumption of natural resources and energy .This idea of green concrete is quite new, developed to reduce the effect on environment during production process of cement .The manufacturing of cement results to emission of about 10 percent of the world’s total carbon dioxide .Therefore by replacing the cement by various materials which are not harmful for environment such as fly ash reduce the problem of disposal of these industrial wastes .This review paper gives us a definite idea of advantages and disadvantages of green concrete.
