Abstract: Sugarcane bagasse ash is a by-product of sugar factories found after burning of sugarcane bagasse which itself is an extracted material. India alone generates approximately 90 million of bagasse as a solid waste from the sugarcane industry every year. The disposal of this material is already causing environmental problems around due to unavailability of sufficient land for disposal. About 3 tones out of 10 tones sugarcane crushed is the ash obtain after burning. This accumulation of waste is not only causing problem for disposal but also affect the environment adversely. It becomes necessary to find the solution for disposal of sugarcane bagasse ash. In this paper bagasse ash sample was collected from Purti Power plant (Bela) which was sieved through 125 micron IS sieve size. Ordinary Portland Cement was replaced by the bagasse ash sample in the percentage of 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% for M25 mix. The properties of concrete such as workability i.e. slump cone and compaction factor test, compressive strength along with the test on bagasse ash individually such as moisture content, volatile matter, carbon content, consistency test, initial and final setting time were tested. The cubes casted for compressive strength result were tested for 7 days, 14 days as well 28 days of tank curing. The outcomes in the test signifies that it will be beneficial to use the sugarcane bagasse ash as a replacing material of cement up to 20% of its replacement.
