Abstract: Concrete is used more than any other man-made material in the world, in fact it is the second most consumed substance in the world after water. The production of concrete is the reason for the emission of 5% of total global emission. This is high time to think for an alternative to cement since the production of cement is the main reason for emission. There are considerable attempts which have taken place in order to replace cement other materials. One of those is Geo-Polymer Concrete (GPC), which is successful enough to fully replace the cement but with certain limitations. These limitations are making it unpopular among the practicing engineers. Hence, an attempt has been made to consolidate the research works carried out by the researchers in the area of geopolymer concrete. The limitations of geopolymer concrete are also presented
