A Review on Environmental Protection of Geopolymer Concrete
Abstract: The development of Geopolymer concrete technology in recent years reaches the highest development due to its lower global warming potential and as it is a viable solution for conventional concrete replacement. In this respect, the geopolymer technology proposed by Davidovits (1978) is one of the revolutionary developments resulting in a low-cost and ecological substitute for Portland cement. Geopolymers have the potential to replace the traditional OPC based concrete as the geopolymer binders are highly sensitive and durable. Geopolymer Concrete can obtain its higher strength economically by using the industrial wastes. Recycling of such wastes and using them in construction materials appears to be viable solution to prove for an environmental impact. In this paper, the development of Geopolymer technology by using industrial waste in Oven and ambient curing will be reviewed from the present study required for our future needs.
