Abstract
Sugarcane bagasse ash is a waste product of the sugar refining industry which is already causing serious environmental pollution, which calls for urgent ways of handling the waste. Due to the use of sugarcane bagasse ash instead of cement, it is necessary to compare the chemical properties of cement and sugarcane bagasse ash. The proportion of lime in the ash of sugarcane is much lower than that of lime in cement. Therefore, it I necessary to add lime for comparison. Porous and open textured materials such as lime plasters, help to stabilize the internal of a building by absorbing and releasing moisture.The utilization of industrial and agricultural waste produced by industrial processes has been the focus of waste reduction research for economical, environmental and technical reasons. There are lots of environmental impacts of cement on our ecology. Cement industry creating environmental problem by emission of CO2 during manufacturing of cement. Sugar-cane bagasse is a fibrous waste-product of the sugar refining industry, along with ethanol vapour. This waste product (Sugar-cane Bagasse ash) is already causing serious environmental pollution, which calls for urgent ways of handling the waste. Bagasse ash has been chemically and physically characterized, and partially replaced in the various percentages by weight of cement in concrete. Fresh concrete tests as well as hardened concrete tests were undertaken. Lime concrete, produced by this mix, makes a good base for load bearing walls, columns, or laying under floors because it has a degree of flexibility that regular concrete does not. It also has a certain waterproof property to it that prevents subsoil dampness in floors and walls. Additionally, lime concrete can be made easily and cheaply while still providing a durable
