Abstract – Depletion of the virgin natural river sand is the main issue concerning the construction industry. Sustainable construction is the need of nowadays. Industrial solid wastes like Grog is generated in abundant quantities and are disposed in open lands. This leads to environmental issues and utilizes large area of land that can be put to better use. So the wastes like Grog can be used in concrete. So in this study, Grog is used to make concrete to check feasibility of it to be used in making concrete.

Keywords – Grog, Refractory waste
