GPC has been utilized to create a wide variety of concrete items, including domes, statues, planters, and thin architectural cladding panels. In India, only about 45% of glass waste is recycled annually. Glass must be recycled since it does not degrade. Glass may be recycled countless times without losing its quality or purity and is practically entirely recyclable. The experimental program consisted of preparing different mixes of concrete, where the glass powder was used as a partial replacement for fine aggregate. The percentage of replacement varied from 0%, 2.5%, 5%, 7.5%, & 10%. The characteristics of the concrete were assessed in both their fresh and hardened states. Workability and other newly developed qualities were measured, and at different ages (7 and 28 days), compressive strength and flexural strength were examined.
