Abstract: Considering sustainability as issue which means creating or maintaining changes in a balanced structure. Concrete is considered as the main constituent of the building industry and its main component is cement but cement releases almost 5 % of Co2 of the world wide emission. To use sustainability as the prominent resources in order to conserve future generation and to find the alternative materials of cement as it emits more Co2 while production. Cement can be replaced by many materials like fly ash, slag, silica fume, metakaolin, egg shell powder, rice husk ash etc. Cements alternative materials such as by-products are been researched upon.
Keywords: High Strength Concrete, Metakaolin, Super plasticizers, Workability, Compressive strength.
