Abstract: The present study aims to identify the most suitable way to utilize the waste materials produced from different industries as the replacement of cement for highway construction purposes. Several studies have been conducted across the world which identified the adverse effects of different waste materials on environment as well as on human health also. The basis of different studies, it was revealed that the production of cement on large scale is also responsible for causing several diseases to the human and the water pollution. Therefore, it is the need of the situation to utilize the different waste material as an alternative of cement. For the same purpose several studies were conducted across the world. Consequently, different waste materials were found to be appropriate ranging from 5% to 50% for the highway construction purposes. But, still there is a need to replace the cement completely by introducing another material by considering the chemical composition of cement (i.e. to achieve the same binding property as cement has). In the present study, an attempt has been made to aware the researchers and engineers to manufacture inexperienced concrete in order to attain the balance between environment, economical and technical aspects by highlighting different methods of utilizing the discarded materials (i.e. waste).
