Abstract: Marble slurry is a waste material produced during the quarrying, cutting, and finishing of marble stone. The higher quantity of waste is non-biodegradable has engendered during the mining and processing operation of dimensional stone such as marble. Throughout the long term, it has become an ecumenical disturbance by harming the climate by meaning multiple. In this way, it is needed to discover the strategy for securely arrange or reuse marble squander.

Henceforth during the last years, Various pieces of literature have been published and show huge potential. Marble slurry has been utilized in concrete with a point of substitution of concrete. A comprehensive overview of the published literature on the sustainable use of marble dust in concrete is being presented. The impact of the replacement of conventional cement by marble slurry has been studied on the properties of concrete such as in terms of Fresh, Hardened, and Durability properties of concrete.

Concrete is the most general material used for construction in the whole world. The major constituents are Cement, Fine aggregate(Sand), Coarse aggregate, and water for the production of concrete. Cement acts as a binder during the whole process of concrete production but it requires a huge quantity of energy for the production. The cement production industries are major contributors to increase the carbon footprint and greenhouse emission.
According to Luhar et al.(2016), marble waste generated more than 3.95 billion tons per year and 7% of the total greenhouse gas emission on the earth.
According to Singh et al.(2019)if the situation will still going on then the annual production of cement is 4.3 billion tons, and we can expect that this number may increase to 6.2 billion tons by the year 2050.
For the production of 1 Ton cement around 0.94 Ton of CO2 is released by Sahan et al.(2016).The production of cement and the carbon emission could
be minimized by using alternatives of cementitious material which reduces the amount of energy required to produce cement, cost, and time with a reduction in environmental hazards by Rana et al.(2015).
