Portland Limestone Cement: it's coming, but it's nothing to be afraid of

Presented by: Tom Tietz - Executive Director, California Nevada Cement Association & Nate Forrest, P.E. - Technical Director, California Nevada Cement Association

Portland cement manufacturers have developed a modified cement formulation called Portland Limestone Cement, or PLC to respond to growing calls for reducing embodied carbon associated with construction. PLC is a blended cement with a higher limestone content, which results in a product that works the same, measures the same, and performs the same, but with a reduction in carbon footprint of 10% on average. We will explain the research that has been done in this area, the history of adoption going back several decades, and the pending adoption at the state level in California.
