|Abstract:||Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions is the need of the hour. Five to eight percent of the world's man-made greenhouse gas emissions are from the Cement industry itself. It is an established fact that the green house gas emissions are reduced by 80% in Geopolymer concrete vis-a-vis the conventional Portland cement manufacturing, as it does not involve carbonate burns etc. Thus Geopolymer based Concrete is highly environment friendly and the same time it can be made a high-performance concrete. In the present study, fly ash, blast furnace slag and catalytic liquids have been used to prepare Geopolymer concrete mixes. This study is continued to investigate the behaviour of such Geopolymer concrete under high temperatures ranging from 100�C to 500�C. Cubes of size 100mm � 100mm � 100 mm are tested for their residual compressive strengths after subjecting them to these high temperatures. � 2012 IEEE.|
