Cement is the world`s most adaptable, strong and solid development material. By water, cement is the most utilized material, which required expansive amounts of Portland cement. Conventional Portland cement generation is the second just to the vehicles as the significant generator of carbon di oxide, which dirtied the air. Notwithstanding that huge sum vitality was likewise devoured for the bond creation. Subsequently, it is unavoidable to locate an option material to the current most costly, most asset expending Portland cement. Geopolymer cement is a creative development material which might be delivered by the compound activity of inorganic particles. Fly Ash, a by-result of coal got from the warm power plant is bounty accessible around the world. Fly ash is rich in silica and alumina responded with soluble arrangement delivered aluminosilicate gel that gone about as the coupling material for the solid. It is a brilliant option development material to the current plain bond concrete. Geopolymer cement should be delivered without utilizing any measure of conventional Portland bond. This paper quickly surveys the constituents of geopolymer solid, its quality and potential applications.
