Slag Cement Association Celebrates 20 Years

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Slag Cement Association (SCA). The association serves as a leading source of knowledge for slag cement and slag blended cements through promotion, education and technology development.

“SCA is proud of what it has accomplished in its 20 years of service,” said Drew Burns, SCA executive director. “Slag cement offers many benefits when used in concrete construction such as durability, sustainability, improved finishability and much more. SCA provides many resources exemplifying these benefits and are free to the industry such as technical information sheets, webinars and videos, life cycle assessment calculator, Environmental Product Declaration for slag cement and the Slag Cement in Sustainable Concrete Awards program.”

In recognition of its 20th anniversary, SCA will be hosting its first Slag Cement School event at the American Concrete Institute world headquarters, May 11-12, 2022. The event will include educational presentations on slag cement use in concrete construction, sustainable resources available and other presentations on the benefits of use. Members will demonstrate how to use SCA’s newly updated life cycle assessment calculator for slag cement.
