SCA Hosts 2023 Slag Cement School in Cape Canaveral, Florida

Slag Cement School

The Slag Cement Association (SCA) successfully concluded its second annual Slag Cement School in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The educational event, held on May 22 and May 23, featured technical presentations on the benefits of slag cement in concrete design and construction, as well as sustainability tools and resources available to the concrete industry. On the second day, attendees were treated to an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of Heidelberg Materials’ slag grinding plant.

SCA President Lori Tiefenthaler welcomed more than 50 attendees from 15 different states to Slag Cement School. Along with the technical presentations and tour, the event also included a sponsor presentation by NEU: An ACI Center of Excellence for Carbon Neutral Concrete, a speaker panel discussion, and a networking reception.

“Slag Cement School offers a valuable opportunity for individuals interested in understanding the advantages of slag cement and its increasing importance in reducing the carbon impact of concrete construction,” stated SCA Marketing Director Nick Brimley. “The event also provides an excellent platform for attendees to network and connect with industry experts.”

The generous support of its sponsors: NEU: an ACI Center of Excellence for Carbon Neutral Concrete; Heidelberg Materials; Argos; Florida Concrete & Products Association; and Köppern made the Slag Cement School possible.
