Sustainable management of industrial wastes in concrete industry

Jagseer singh


The use of industrial waste in concrete manufacture gives an appropriate solution to many environment concerns and burdens associated with waste management. A large amount of industrial waste such as Bagasse ash, Coal bottom ash, Blast furnace slag, Copper slag, etc is produced in most of developing as well as developed countries. In the last few decades there has been speedily increase in these waste. This obviously causes for many environmental issues and raises the potential to contaminate natural resources of living such as water, air and soil. So, the appropriate disposal of these wastes and by products is a serious burden of every country. The safe disposal of such industrial wastes is very expensive. Furthermore, there is a lack of disposal sites which can appropriately handle such wastes without causing harmful effects on the environment. Fortunately, the use of industrial waste in concrete is a suitable path towards effective disposal of waste as well as preservation of natural resources of aggregates. Several researchers have investigated the possible use of these wastes as cement and aggregates in concrete and its effects on the different mechanical and long term properties of mortar and concrete. The use of these wastes in cement and concrete provides potential environmental as well as economic benefits for all related industries, particularly in areas where a considerable amount of these wastes is produced.
