Abstract
In the current situation, concrete is the most essential factor. This binding substance is used for the whole building process. Because of the tremendous demand for megastructures, cement use has been at an all-time high for the previous few decades. Furthermore, cement is the sole substance whose demand is rising on a daily basis in order to satisfy humanity's requirements. Since a result, the price of cement is rising, as the demand for it is growing rapidly and the supply is restricted. Cement production emits CO2 and other gases, which contribute to global warming and, in turn, climate change, making it one of the most complex materials. Its usage cannot be halted, but it may be curtailed by utilising a variety of materials. This article looks at how Micro silica and Coconut Fibres may be used to replace cement and coarse aggregate, respectively.Experiments were carried out on plain concrete, which was then altered by the addition of other materials. After that, the results of the conventional concrete and geopolymer concrete were compared. Compressive and tensile strength tests were conducted after 7 and 28 days, respectively.
