The concrete and sustainability committees recently joined forces to start a series of white papers on reducing embodied carbon in concrete structural design. The goal of this series of papers is to highlight and make accessible a variety of carbon emission reduction techniques in concrete production, with a focus on the Southern California region.
This first paper in the series is focused on Portland Limestone Cement (PLC) and contains information and resources to help the industry with the design and implementation of mixes using PLC to help achieve our industry carbon neutrality goals.
You may find a copy of the white paper here:
