The production of the cement concrete industry has grown in this modern world and is considered as one of the major contributions of global pollution. The increase of different infrastructures has directly affected the increase of production of concrete. The production of cement used as a binder contribute to the increase of the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and also consumes an important number of natural resources; thus, aggravating the modern issue of global warming.

Also, many types of cement concrete structures mostly those built-in corrosive environments designed for a life service of more than 50 years, deteriorate after 20 to 40years.As a result, it’s vital to replace cement in concrete with specified alumina-rich materials such as silica fume, blast furnace slag, rice husk ash, fly ash, etc to address the pollution problem.

Based on this, numerous studies have been conducted to develop an innovative and environmentally beneficial material known as green concrete or geopolymer concrete. To improve the qualities of concrete and reduce natural resource use, geopolymer concrete incorporates materials like silica fume, fly ash, blast furnace slag, rice husk ash, and others.

This paper gives an overview and explains how the various factors affect the strength of geopolymer concrete.

Keyphrases: Aggregates., Alkali activators, compressive strength, curing time and temperature, fly ash, Geopolymer concrete
