In the present scenario, Paver Block is the most used pavement material worldwide. On the global market scale, different types of paver blocks are available. Among these, 90 % of the paver blocks are concrete. Most of the urban pavements are being done with this concrete paver blocks only. But there are many problems associated with this concrete paver blocks.
The main problem associated with this paver block is their impermeable nature, which prevents the percolation of running water in to the ground and leads to abundant runoff generation.
The runoff is further contaminated by the surroundings and will be rendered useless. The second problem is that its major ingredients cement and sand have environmental degradation issues like CO2 emission and sand exploitation. The third problem is the manufacturing time of this paver blocks takes minimum of 28 days
The objective of this proposal is to manufacture a Permeable Geopolymer Concrete Paver Blocks without cement and sand to rectify the above-mentioned problems. The Permeable Geopolymer Concrete paver blocks acts as a suitable remedial measure that allows water from precipitation to percolate through the ground and thereby reducing the runoff on the pavements and recharges ground water table
t also reduces the considerable amount of CO2 emission and sand exploitation. The main advantage of this paver block is the duration of the manufacturing process is minimal when compared to the conventional paver blocks. Within 3 days, product can be sold with the required quality at a reasonable cost.
