Abstract: The Photocatalytic Concrete helps to reduce the air temperature in urban environment and eventually reduce quantity of smoke. Titanium Dioxide (Tio2), a nano material was used as a catalytic material to produce Photocatalytic concrete, In this study, M20 grade concrete was prepared by partially replacing. Fine aggregate with sinicon PP at varying proportion of 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%, which is light weight material and has very low specific gravity compared to normal fine aggregate and also the cement being constantly replaced by Tio2 and Rice husk ash as 1% and 10% respectively. The effect of Tio2, Sinicon PP and Rice husk ash was investigated through mechanical and durability properties and also emission test was carried out to compare the amount of gases released in both conventional concrete and photocatalytic concrete.
