Abstract: This study is an attempt to find a suitable utilization for a particular fly ash depending upon its properties and thus reduce the need for vast areas for disposal of fly ash which in turn causes considerable damage to the environment .In India. around 110 million tones of fly ash get accumulated every year at the thermal power stations.. Internationally fly ash is considered as a byproduct which can be used for many applications. Fly Ash mission was initiated in 1994 to promote gainful and environment friendly utilization of the material. One of the areas identified for its bulk utilization was in construction of roads and embankments. Concrete is being widely used for the construction of most of the buildings , bridges, etc throughout the world. Hence it is the backbone to the infra structure development of a nation. India is taking major initiatives to improve and develop its infrastructure by constructing express highways, power projects and industrial structures. A huge quantity of concrete is required to meet out infrastructure development. Fly ash is a by-product of burned coal from power station. Considerable efforts are being taken worldwide to utilize natural waste.
Keywords: Fly Ash, Environment, the construction of most of the buildings, bridges, etc.
