Abstract: The Civil Industry finding out the sustainable solution in every area focusing on environment prevention concept. As per the research data of past few decades, there is a big challenge to reduce CO2 emissions in the environment when construction field is developing rapidly. In this situation, the waste disposal and CO2 emission is the biggest challenge for the entire civil industry. Entire civil industry is facing the problem of CO2 emission because of cement and steel production. To give the best solution for environment and construction field to produce sustainable concrete, the use of industrial waste in concrete is introduced nowadays. In this research work, the use of steel industry waste in concrete with optimum replacement was done. For this study, different percentages of replacement were done with the waste powder of steel industry in place of cement. After the numbers of replacement, optimum replacement percentage has been done to achieve the desired grade of concrete. For the better understanding of sustainability of the produced concrete from waste were investigated for different fresh and mechanical properties under different test as per the specifications. After finding out the properties of concrete, the same properties were investigated under acidic and alkaline curing conditions till 180 days at 28 days interval to understand the strength and other micro and macro level properties. From this entire investigation, the results were found satisfactory which shown that the concrete with optimum waste replacement under different curing conditions giving best results even after 180 days so it can be used as in structures which are continuously in contact with severe exposure conditions. This investigation gives the better sustainable solution with tremendous results and also found economic in cost. So as an outcome of this research, this feasible concrete is used in construction industry at different places after this research.
