Geo-polymer concrete (GPC) is a concrete manufactured without using cement. This type of concrete has environmental benefit as it has very low greenhouse gas emission compared to that resulted from the production of Portland cement. In addition, it also utilizes the by-product materials which makes it more environmentally friendly. Geo-polymer concrete in the present study is manufactured by using the industrial by products such as Ground Granulated Blast Furnace (GGBS), fly-ash as source materials which are rich in silica and aluminium; alkaline solution and aggregates normally used for ordinary Portland cement concrete. In this paper, the strength and drying shrinkage characteristics of geo-polymer concrete have been compared with that of ordinary Portland cement concrete.
