Abstract: Industrial wastes mostly dumped into the soil or water sources which will pollute the environment. As a mitigation measure now a days the industrial wastes are used as a construction materials. In this project, industrial waste material such as Glass bottle, Illuminate sludge were used in varying percentage as fine grained substitution and Metakaolin is used as a binding material substitution. M30 concrete mix is used to test the compressive and split tensile strength of the concrete specimens. Cement is replaced with metakaolin in 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20%. Fine aggregate is replaced by illuminate sludge in 25, 50, 75 and 100% and beer glass bottle waste in 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50%.The Glass material does not pollute the environment but storage of waste glass material results wastage of land. Thereby glass powder can be used as a substitution in construction. Then the Illuminate sludge and Metakaolin are the waste from the Titanium Product. The materials to be used for the experiment are collected and the physical properties tests were done as per codal specifications. The experiment is conducted to determine the strength of concrete specimen by adding different industrial waste in various proportions. For every industrial wastes each ratio, three specimens were prepared to find out the compressive and split tensile strength of concrete at 7, 14 and 28 days and finally it was allowed to curing for obtaining the optimum strength of concrete. The substitution of Glass bottle powder waste up to 30%, Illuminate sludge 20% and Metakaolin 8% will give the optimum compressive strength. bottle powder waste up to 30% Illuminate sludge 20% and Metakaolin 8% will give the optimum compressive strength.
