Abstract

The concrete industry is one of the largest consumers of natural resources due to which sustainability of concrete industry is under threat. The environmental and economics concern is the biggest challenge the concrete industry is facing. This is the prime time to develop alternative sustainable construction materials, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy, look to renewable energy sources and recycled materials, and reduce waste. The utilization of waste materials (slag, fly ash, plastic and so on) in concrete manufacturing is significant due to its engineering, financial, environmental and ecological benefits. Glass is widely used in our lives through manufactured products such as sheet glass, bottles, glassware, and vacuum tubing .Glass is an ideal material for recycling. The use of recycled glass saves lot of energy and the increasing awareness of glass recycling speeds up focus on the use of waste glass with different forms in various fields. One of its significant contributions is the construction field where the waste glass was reused for concrete production. Several study have shown that waste glass that is crushed and screened is a strong, safe and economical alternative to sand used in concrete. The study indicated that waste glass can effectively be used as fine aggregate replacement without substantial change in strength.
