Cement industries give rise of the carbon dioxide in our social environment. The air is not fresh near cement industry and its parts affect the breathing system. To reduce air pollution and carbon dioxide, the alternative materials like cement are needed to find out as admixture or partial replacement. The industrial and agricultural wastages in concrete partly as cement replacement not only reduce the cost of making concrete but also reduce environmental pollution and minimize the waste emissions. In this paper, two sources of sugarcane bagasse ash were used as partial replacement of cement. Sugarcane bagasse ash (SCBA) sample was collected from NwayDay and Oatkan sugar factories. Untreated bagasse ash has been partially replaced in the ratio of 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% by weight of cement in concrete and compared with water cement ratio 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6. Fresh concrete test and hardened concrete test at the age of 7, 14, 28 and 56 days are investigated. And then two sources were compared at 56days compressive strength to get the Grade 40. The result shows that the strength of Oatkan SCBA is better than NwayDay SCBA.
