Abstract. Construction industry is estimated to consume nearly 30-35% of natural resources and associated to major global pollutions. It is essential to move our path into a sustainable way of construction practices, to conserve natural resources for the future generation. Several researchers had investigated the various possibilities of alternatives to produce sustainable green building materials from industrial by-products, for example, blast furnace slag, fly ash and silica (SiO2). Presently, there has been an attempt to use the large amount of Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SBA) which is formed when using the bagasse-biomass fuel in electric generation industry. Due to availability of Cement kiln dust (CKD) and Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SBA) in large amounts, it appears to be cost effective and eco-friendly by the applications for these industrial by-products. The overall goal of this research study was to replace cement by certain percentage through potential applications for the Cement kiln dust (CKD) and Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SBA) based on a detailed characterization of the materials. The analyses are discussed in terms of Setting time, Consistency test and Compressive Strength. As a result, Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SBA) for a certain percentage replaced in cement increases the strength of mortar cube but if it exceeds 20%, then the strength starts to decrease.
