Popular building material has always been improving in the lines of material science developments. In this paper, the no use of Ordinary Portland Cement concrete studied, viz., fly ash-, slag- and meta-kaolin-based concrete, etc., from low to high strengths has been presented. Presently, all researchers and construction industries are working on using waste and energy-efficient material to develop sustainable concrete. This article presents the effects of various variables on the slump properties and mechanical properties, specifically to compressive strength. Recent study results indicated the alkali-activated and geopolymer binders have strong potential to replace conventional binders to a greater extent. Application of this environmentally friendly concrete may be an appropriate alternative to traditional concrete.
