Abstract: 
To help minimize water temperature variations and stop excessive evaporation, effective insulation materials are frequently needed during the design and construction of ponds. In contrast to conventional materials, geopolymer mortars have great insulating qualities, making them an attractive option. An alkaline activator and aluminosilicate materials react chemically to create geopolymers, which have a three-dimensional network structure and high thermal insulation properties. Geopolymer mortars are used in ponds to promote energy efficiency and sustainability while also improving temperature stability and reducing water loss from evaporation. An alkaline activator and aluminosilicate materials react chemically to create geopolymers, which have a three-dimensional network structure and high thermal insulation properties. The use of geopolymer mortars as an insulating material in pond construction is discussed in this abstract, along with its composition, characteristics, and advantages over more conventional choices. Geopolymer mortars are used in ponds to promote energy efficiency and sustainability while also improving temperature stability and reducing water loss from evaporation. The utilization of geopolymers as cutting-edge insulating materials for structures with green roofs is thoroughly examined in this publication. As sustainable construction techniques become more prevalent, selecting the right insulating materials is essential for enhancing energy efficiency and overall building performance. Geopolymers, which can be produced from industrial waste or natural resources, offer appealing properties for green roofs, such as the ability to lessen the impact of urban heat islands, superior thermal insulation, and fire resistance. This study assesses the advantages, challenges, and potential impact of geopolymer-based insulating materials on green construction practices.
