Green Concrete-for the Future-A Review – IJERT

Jul 30, 2018  Instead of a 100 percent Portland cement mixture, green concrete uses anywhere from 25 to 100 percent fly ash. Fly ash is a byproduct of coal combustion and is gathered from the chimneys of industrial plants (such as power plants) that use coal as a power source. There are copious amounts of this industrial waste product.

In addition, the spherical nature of fly ash particles improves the workability of concrete, reducing the amount of water needed during production. More challengingly, its slower setting time means its early strength is lower than traditional cement, making it unsuitable for use in the precast industry and potentially increasing construction times.
