Holcim US Recognized for Innovation

The Slag Cement Association (SCA) recently recognized Holcim US as a winner in the 2023 Slag Cement in Sustainable Concrete Awards. The sustainable building solutions leader was honored in the Innovative Applications category.

Holcim US secured the win by showcasing its project at the Duck Lake Country Club in Albion, Mich. The project revived the club’s distressed, asphalt parking lot by topping it with a concrete overlay. By replacing 25% of the portland-limestone cement with slag, the mix reduced the embodied carbon of the white-topped parking lot project.

“What makes this project particularly innovative is the way we used slag cement to mitigate potential concerns with material degradation while increasing long-term strength and durability,” said Patrick Cleary, senior vice president, sales at Holcim US. “This award exemplifies what we do best in providing our customers with sustainable, long-lasting and economical solutions.”

Since 2010, the SCA has honored the exceptional use of slag cement in sustainable concrete construction.
