Green Concrete was first invented in Denmark in the year 1998. It is much likely the conventional concrete but requires less amount of  energy and causes least harm to environment. This is achived by using the concrete waste and less energy in production and produces less carbon dioxides than normal concrete. This environmental friendly and energy saving product was named GREEN CONCRETE and was nothing to relate with color of it.
And thus Green Concrete is defined as the concrete with material as a partial or complete replacement of cement or fine or coarse aggregates.

Why Green Concrete ?

why should we use green concrete
Advantages Of Green Concrete

As in manufacturing of cement Carbon Dioxide is driven off and approximately for 1 kg of cement 900 gms of CO2 is released into atmosphere.
In Green the demolished waste aggregates, recycled concrete aggregate, fly ash is used so it maintains some eco-logical balance and reduces the waste products. 
It gives ultimate strength, increases durability, improves workability, reduces the bleeding and shrinkage.

Green Concrete Material
The major application of Green Concrete is seen in construction of bridges, building construction especially used in construction of columns, and can be used in road construction. It is seen to reduce the dead weight of the structure of a facade from 5 to 3 tons.,has good thermal and fire resistance, reduces 30% CO2 emission, 20% increase in used / waste concrete, less environmental pollution. 
Green Concrete requires less maintenance and repairs.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be
