Nominations are now being accepted until November 1, 2021
Farmington Hills, Mich., Sept. 23, 2021 – The Slag Cement Association (SCA) is proud to announce the rebranding of its awards program. Previously known as the Slag Cement Project of the Year Awards since its inception more than 10 years ago, is now the Slag Cement in Sustainable Concrete Awards Program. This change directly reflects the vital role of slag cement in creating sustainable and resilient concrete.
The categories now include Architectural, Durability, Infrastructure, High Performance, Innovative Applications, and Lower Carbon Concrete. In addition, nominators can now indicate if portland-limestone cement (PLC) was used on a project on the nomination form furthering the recognition of sustainable concrete.
The SCA Awards Program also honors research in the field of slag cement. Research winners receive a $1,000 stipend from the SCA to help attend the ceremony, usually held in-person at the ACI Spring Concrete Convention.
“The rebrand of the SCA Awards program exemplifies the importance of sustainability in concrete construction. Slag cement provides many benefits when used in concrete mixtures such as durability, resiliency, and high performance. This is great opportunity to showcase the use of slag cement and PLC in lowering the carbon impact of concrete,” said SCA Executive Director, Drew Burns.
The 2021 Slag Cement in Sustainable Concrete Awards Program is now accepting nominations and will close November 1, 2021. Eligibility requires projects to be in North America and completed or scheduled to be completed between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2021.
