Abstract: In the Construction sector the need of cement is expanding step by step for fulfilling the need of improvement of foundation developments. The creation of Ordinary Portland concrete emanates the enormous amount of CO2 into the climate. Hence, it is basic to discover choices to make the solid eco – neighborly. Low calcium fly ash based geopolymer cement is a substitute choice for bond based cement. It is an inorganic alumina-silicate compound, blended from fly ash remains. The exploratory work on Geopolymer cement is to assess the impact of different parameters influencing its compressive quality and usefulness of cement so as to improve its general execution was extended. Basic arrangement utilized for present examination is mix of sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate. By applying the Nano Technology, expansion of Nano silica is to improve the quality of cement. The essential distinction between geo-polymer cement and Portland bond cement is the binding property. The silicon and aluminum oxides in the low-calcium fly slag responds with the soluble fluid to frame the geo-polymer concrete that ties the free coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, and other un-responded materials together to shape the geo-polymer concrete. As on account of Portland bond concrete, the coarse and fine totals possess around 75 to 80% of the mass of geo-polymer concrete. The impact of totals, for example, reviewing, precision and quality, are viewed as equivalent to on account of Portland bond concrete. Along these lines, this segment of geo-polymer solid blends can be structured utilizing the instruments as of now accessible bond for Portland concrete. The principle goal of this exploration work is to break down the carbon dioxide free cementitious material with its quality, functionality properties and their impacts on Geopolymer concrete for maintainable improvement.
