The responsibility of the construction industry is not only to provide quality construction but also to provide a clean environment. With the rapid industrialization and urbanization, the generation of industrial by-product is also increasing very rapidly. This is not only pollutes the environment but also creates disposal problems. This paper gives information about the research carried out on cement with a partial replacement with fly ash and GGBS with bacteria in the mix giving great results and being highly sustainable and eco-friendly. From the results of the investigation, it has been observed that, the performance of blended cement concrete is better than that of the conventional concrete.
