Abstract: Concrete is the Most Important Aspect in Present scenario. All the construction is being done with the help of this binding material. Use of cement is rising on the peak from the last few decades due to enormous demand of construction of mega structures. In addition to that cement is the only material whose demand is increasing day by day in order to meet the needs of mankind. Subsequently the price of cement is also increasing as its demand is increasing profoundly and also it available limited only. Manufacturing of cement results in emission of CO2 and other gases which contribute in global warming and which further contribute in climate change and thus it is one of the most complicated material. Its use cannot stopped but can be limited by using various materials. This paper deals with replacing of cement by fly ash and GGBS. Experiments were performed on plain concrete and then it was alter with the use of fly ash and GGBS. After that analysis were done to compare the result for the conventional concrete and geopolymer concrete . Compressive strength , acid resistance and water absorption tests were carried out after consequent 7, 14, 28 days respectively.
