Abstract – While producing paper, various wastes come out from the various processes in paper industries. The preliminary waste from paper industry is named as hypo sludge. In this study the material obtained from the paper industry waste (hypo sludge) is admixed with Portland cement at different replacement levels. The properties of concrete investigated include compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength, sorptivity and acid effect keeping optimum percentage of hypo sludge supposedly supplementary cementitious material (SCM).The Sorptivity test has also been conducted. It is concluded that hypo sludge concrete had better mechanical properties and durability properties compared to normal concrete. Test results indicate that the use of hypo sludge in concrete has improved the performance of concrete from strength as well as durability aspects.
