The concerns about environment degradation and global warming have led the attention of researchers on concrete technology towards High Volume Flyash Concrete (HVFAC). Use of HVFA technology is one such step towards construction of eco-friendly buildings. HVFA concrete is the one in which atleasr 50% of cement content is replaced by flyash, which otherwise is a waste material if used in concrete will result in waste utilisation , as well as with lower CO2 emission will help in reducing global warming. The state of the art on the use of HVFA technology is presented here. Various advantages of use of high volumes of flyash in concrete alongwith its effects on concrete in its plastic as well as hardened state are elaborated herewith
