Abstract: After water the most widely used substance on Earth is concrete. Manufacturing of cement for concrete consumes vast quantities of energy and releases CO2 in the process, which can be conserved by using supplementary cementitious materials. These materials enable to use hundreds of millions of tons of byproduct materials thereby reducing waste disposal problem and replacing part of cement without deduction of equivalent engineering properties in binary blended or even ternary blended concrete. India is growing at an unprecedented pace and roads, bridges, dams, skyscrapers etc. are the need of an hour of the city. The Skyline is changing and with it demand for a sustainable, durable, eco-friendly and high performance concrete is increasing, to address this challenge a new generation micro fine pozzolanic material Alccofine can be used in concrete which opened the path for innovative research in the field of civil engineering. In this paper review on effect of recently developed Alccofine for sustainable development of concrete industry is studied.
