The present study investigates the impact of agro-green waste as an additive to concrete composition. The objective of the investigation is to evaluate the impact of agro-waste material as a thermal insulator for buildings. It helps in the reduction of energy consumption inside buildings. Wheat straw, rice husk, and coconut coir are used for the preparation of the composite concrete mixture. With a decrease in thermal conductivity and an increase in compressive strength, this paper provides a possibility of agro-waste in the concrete industry.
