Cement, sand and aggregate are basic needs for any construction industry. Sand is a prime material used for preparation of mortar and concrete and which plays a major role in mix design. Now a day’s erosion of rivers and considering environmental issues, there is a scarcity of river sand. The non-availability or shortage of river sand will affect the construction industry; hence there is a need to find the new alternative material to replace the river sand, such that excess river erosion and harm to environment is prevented. Many researchers are finding different materials to replace sand and one of the major materials is copper slag. Copper slag and micro silica are industrial by-product materials produced from the process of manufacturing copper and Ferro - silicon Metal industry. Use of Copper slag and micro silica does not only reduce the cost of construction but also helps to reduce the impact on environment by consuming the material generally considered as waste product. In this paper an attempt has been made to review all the literature that is available and find out the outcome of many researchers so that an appropriate method can be suggested for further studies. Study has revealed that materials such as copper slag and micro silica which are waste materials or byproduct of industry can be advantageously utilized in preparing concrete which not only brings down the cost of concrete but also solves issues of procuring river sand as well which is also beneficial for the habitat.
