The study on the effect of elevated temperature on Geo-polymer concrete (GPC) got its significance because conventional concrete start to deteriorate around 4000C. GPC gains attention as it is eco-friendly and economical, by utilizing industrial by-products. GPC also an alternate solution as the raw materials to produce cement are depleting day by day. GPC gains strength by geo-polymerization with the reactions between mineral admixtures and alkaline solutions. This paper presents the studies on general properties and advantages of GPC over conventional concrete which depend on properties of binder, type of curing etc. Current study mainly concentrates on effect of elevated temperatures and post fire properties of GPC depending upon rate of heating, duration of fire and maximum high temperature. Strength and durability recovery of fire damaged concrete is discussed.
