The Portland Cement Association (PCA) launched a new promotion initiative emphasizing the sustainable benefits of portland-limestone cement (PLC), which performs comparably to Type I portland cement with up to 10% less greenhouse gas emissions.
A microsite is focused on the product, and features case studies, applications, frequently asked questions and the status of acceptance in the United States and around the world. Additionally, the site gives users access to a PLC calculator where builders, architects and designers can input building size or pavement length to see how much PLC can reduce a project’s overall carbon footprint.
“PLC is another example of the cement industry evolving over the years, continuing to innovate and sustainably producing the high-quality cement that is needed to help keep America’s infrastructure strong and resilient,” said PCA President and CEO Mike Ireland. “This initiative will help educate engineers and other specifiers on how PLC can easily be incorporated into numerous projects.”
