Abstract

Concrete Paver block is used for a wide variety of street and other building applications. Infrastructural development is at its peak throughout the world and is a symbol of growth for any country. Today, despite the scarcity of raw ingredients, concrete use is steadily increasing throughout the world. Since cement is the main concrete component, it has a greater environmental impact on global warming, as 10% of total carbon emissions are related to the cement industry. Portland cement produces significant amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2), which causes global warming and is therefore a greenhouse gas. It has thus become important to reduce the use of cement and to find suitable waste material that can be used to partly substitute cement and enhance concrete characteristics. There is a solution named "Green concrete" to some degree nowadays Green concrete may be identified with the material as a partial or full replacement of cement or as fine or coarse aggregates. Green concrete can adopt methodologies of removal, reuse, and recycling, or any two similar methods. The aim of the paper is to discuss the use of green material in construction as a solution to two environmental problems-one, the disposal of large amounts of fly ash, the thermal power plant by-product, causing environmental degradation by large settlement areas and two, a high percentage of CO2 emissions from cement factories into the atmosphere. This research continues to investigate the behaviour of these sustainable paver blocks of M50 grade concrete under environmental temperatures. Replacing up to 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% of fly ash and GGBS hybrid mixture each by weight of cement makes one designs namely A1 to A5 and Replacing 25% and 50% of fly ash by weight of fine aggregate and makes second design B1 and B2.The study of compressive strength (CS) and water absorption test done in this study to get the idea of sustainable paver block and M50 grade control mix concrete paver block is also casted to compare the results and at last rate analysis is conducted to ensure the feasibility of paver block.
