Millions of tonnes of slag are produced in India and abroad on annual basis. The slag has two aspects i.e., right use and wrong use. As per as the right use of slag is concerned that can be used as a raw material in the process of concrete strength and on the other hand the wrong use of slag which is produced at high volume is to throw the slag in the environment which deteriorates the efficiency of the environment. Most of the researchers and Government agencies are working on the programme to safeguard the environment through different means. As for as the present research is concerned the researcher has utilized the iron slag as the partial replacement of cement in the process of concrete production. The study concludes that the use of iron slag in the process of concrete strength is beneficial up to the replacement percentage of 30 in cement. Iron slag can be used up to the replacement percentage of 30 with all the ingredients of concrete as for as the previous researches are concerned. Which means that around 30% of the natural resources can be saved and on the other hand the environment can be saved by around 30% of waste which is utilized in the process of concrete production, hence around 30% of the iron slag need not to be dumped in land fills
