    The manufacturing process of 'clinker' which is an essential element of cement requires burning of fossil fuels, thus increasing the CO emission and decreasing the global stock of fuels. Concept of a novel binding material named 'Geopolymer' appeared in the 1940s as a viable solution to these issues. Geopolymer concrete (GPC) is produced from industrial byproducts such as Fly Ash (FA ...
