Abstract – The main objective of the project  is to  solve the  waste  management of  Textile  Industries, Thermal Power plants and Steel Manufacturing Industries. The solution for  current  environmental  problems  of disposal of  fly  ash has been dealt by use of  Fly ash as an adsorbent  and  using  Colour  Adsorbed  Flyash  as  partial  replacement for  cement  in concrete. The key importance is to use  the  waste materials in concrete. In this experimental investigation an  attempt is  made to  study  the effect of partial replacement of Cement by Colour Adsorbed fly ash properties of Concrete. Also a detailed investigation is made to study the effect on the addition of Colour Adsorbed Fly ash on the properties of concrete.
