Abstract – In recent years, the usage of Rice husk ash (RHA) a pozzolonic material for the preparation of cement concrete had become more important than any other material. The manufacture of Portland cement (PC) is not eco friendly; the content of pozzolonic material in cement mortar exhibits a considerable increase in strength and durability properties. This paper gives a review about the use of RHA and MK as not only a partial replacement for cement but also a replacement for the influence of toxic waste. The collection of literature survey report elaborated that the usage of RHA is an efficacious mineral admixtures, which cause a large betterment in the filling of pore structures. In addition to this it increases the resistance of the concrete to environmental effects, and gives better solutions for the abundant waste of RHA produced from Agricultural product in India.

Key Words – Rice Husk Ash Properties, Workability, Compressive strength, Durability
