Recently Portland Pozzolana cement is being widely utilized as building material in order to drop environmental burden like copious CO2 emission. PPC is cement where the quantity of cement is partially replaced with fly ash content. This experimental work presents an estimate of efflorescence amount in cement mortar with in various brands of PPC. In order to calculate the efflorescence level and to determine the surface area of efflorescence formed quantitatively analyzed through SEM analysis.
