Paper production generally yields a large quantity of solid waste. Paper fibers can only be recycled a few times before they are too short or weak to produce high - quality paper. This means that broken paper fibers of low quality are separated to become waste sludge. In order to reduce the problems of disposal and pollution resulting from these industrial waste, it is essential to develop profitable building materials. In view of this, investigations were carried out to produce low cost concrete by mixing different ratios of cement with lime sludge. The purpose of this project is to investigate the strength of concrete and the optimum percentage of partial substitution by replacing cement by 10 percent, 20 percent, 30 percent, 40 percent, 50 percent, 60 percent of Lime sludge. Keeping all this view, the aim of investigation is the behavior of concrete while adding waste with different proportions of Lime sludge in concrete by compressive strength test. Citation: Keyur J.
