Slag cement shipments grow 12%

Slag cement shipments grew 12% in 2016, according to the Slag Cement Association.

“Those of us in the concrete industry have long known that the use of slag cement increases the strength and durability of concrete at a reduced environmental impact,” said Ed Griffith, president, Slag Cement Association.

“I am pleased that this 12% increase in shipments represents the strength of our economy and the increased understanding of the benefits of slag cement in the design, specification, and construction communities.”

Additionally, the association will present the Slag Cement Project of the Year Awards at the American Concrete Institute’s Convention on March 28, 2017, in Detroit, MI.

The awards will recognize eight projects from across the United States in the categories of architectural design, concrete durability, green design, high performance, innovative applications, and sustainability.  Award winners include a wide variety of projects including airports, buildings, residences, highways, and stadiums.
