A high rate of industrialization requires a high demand for construction material which produces a huge amount of carbon gases which harms the ozone layer and increases the normal temperature of the planet earth. This study is done to minimize that effect by the use of wood ash and wastepaper sludge which gives concrete an increment in the mechanical strength and also reduces the carbon emission replacing cement with a combined mix of wood ash (10%) and paper sludge (5%) gives a good increment of 4% in compressive strength, a 12% increment in tensile load, and an 18% increment in spilled tensile load. this replacement also reduces the cost of concrete up to 700 Rs.
