Abstract: Construction sector which uses cement in its activities causing a release of CO2 into the atmosphere. Currently, all the sectors are viewing seriously in reducing environmental pollution and hazards. In this scenario, the research in industrial wastes such as fly ash, slag, used foundry sand, marble dust, etc., lead to use in construction industries as sustainable materials (SM), thereby contributing to reduction in environmental pollution. This paper reviewed the usage of these SM in the production of micro-concrete is very less when compared with new age conventional concrete, some of the effects of utilization of these SM in micro-concrete are presented. The quantum of research done in micro-concrete is very less, further studies to be done.
Keywords: Micro-Concrete, Green Concrete, Sustainable Concrete, Polymer Modified Micro-Concrete.
Scope of the Article: Concrete Structures
