Abstract
Implementation of sustainability in the construction industry should be made mandatory to replenish resources and save it for future generation. Since the resources are finite, it is necessary to think of alternate resources to save the existing resources without affecting the purpose. In the current scenario a lot research on suitable and effective waste product is going on that considerably minimizes the products used in concrete and reduces the construction cost. This paper examines the use of foundry slag which helps in acquiring an eco-friendly and a partial replacement for fine aggregate, so that the construction will be economical and concrete attains high compressive strength. This qualitative research will show the comparison of compressive strengths between normal concrete and concrete mixed with foundry slag for different grades of concrete. The design of the concrete cube is done by manual calculation in accordance to design specification of IS 800:2001 and IS 456:2000. Based on the result it was inferred that foundry slag matches the normal conventional concrete strength as per the standards. Based on the analysis it can be concluded that foundry slag is a viable alternative for fine aggregate to achieve the goal of sustainable construction.

Key words: Sustainability; conventional; construction industry; resources; foundry slag; fine aggregate; compressive strength.
