SCA Holds Successful Slag Cement School

The Slag Cement Association (SCA) successfully concluded its third annual Slag Cement School in Alsip, Ill., April 29-30. The educational event featured technical presentations on the benefits of slag cement in concrete design and construction, as well as sustainability tools and resources available to the industry. 

On the second day, attendees attended an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of Holcim’s South Chicago slag cement plant.

SCA President Jan Prusinski welcomed more than 60 attendees from 19 different states and three countries to the Slag Cement School. Along with the technical presentations from SCA members, the event also included a special presentation from the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority.

“The Slag Cement Association is thrilled with the growing interest in slag cement from ready-mix concrete professionals, researchers, and cement experts,” said SCA Marketing Director Nick Brimley. “Slag Cement School is a perfect opportunity for attendees to see why slag cement is the ideal product for durable, sustainable construction in our industry.”

The success of the Slag Cement School was made possible through the generous support of its event sponsor: Advancing Organizational Excellence (AOE).
