A Partial Replacement of Cement Concrete with ESP & Glass Powder: An Overview

Naman Chadha


Concrete is a composite material composed of coarse aggregate bonded together with fluid cement that hardens over time, and in construction, it is used above all. Concrete is far supplementary manufactured all over the human race than any other substance. It is extremely adaptable, and is used in more or less all major construction projects. Concrete involves huge amount of consumption of cement depending on the grade of concrete. Traditional concrete is made from a mixture of cement, sand, gravel and water. Cement is an environmentally hazardous material. Most of CO2 in concrete is from the cement manufacturing process. A typical cubic meter of concrete contains about 10% cement by weight. It is third producer of CO2 emission in the global world. Cement production is increasing approximately 5% a year, making it one of the most environmental destructive materials. Aggregate materials like sand and stone that are mixed with cement are mined from quarries, further taxing our natural resources.  In  this  research  paper, it is  described that how consumed  waste  glass  powder  and  egg  shell  ash  powder  is  been  used  as  partial  replacement  for  cement as  it  can’t  be  dissolved  by  natural  or  normal  recycling  ways
