Growth of a country leftovers in the consumption of industrial wastes for its infrastructure amenities. Countries resembling India, certainly wants a vital utilization of industrial waste similar to textile sludge in the construction industry to produce various building materials. Besides it is the duty of every civil engineer or a researcher to connect them in developing innovative materials from the waste dumped as land fillings. In every construction project, about 70% of cost accounts for the purchase of materials. If this, can be play down consequently the cost of construction will certainly be abridged. Research has proven that the textile industry sludge can be reused in construction field up toa feasible extent. The construction industry consumes a large amount of non-renewable resources. On the other hand, more textile industry sludge ends up in landfill or dump sites than those recycled. Consequently, textile industry sludge for use as a construction material constitutes a step towards sustainable development. Keeping this in mind an effort has been made to utilize textile industry sludge obtained from the textile effluent treatment plants used with several pozzolanic and cementitious materials for a specific application. The addition of textile sludge and fly ash has been varied from 0% to 30% by weight of cement for casting of terracing tiles. The tests done with the samples reveals that four samples showed a considerable outcomes with remarkable strength and durability properties which leads to move for the next phase of research for producing light weight tiles.
