Portland-Limestone Cement: Practitioner Perspectives & Market Misconceptions 

Given concrete is the most abundantly used natural material on the planet next to water, the carbon footprint of material components and manufacturing processes significantly contributes to global emissions. However, both cement manufacturers and ready-mixed producers are rapidly deploying innovative strategies to positively impact the embodied carbon of local projects. In response to industry-wide climate goals focused on achieving carbon neutrality, Portland-Limestone Cement (PLC/Type 1L) was introduced by cement manufacturers as a pathway to reduce embodied carbon in concrete and is currently dominating the marketplace. Amidst PLC’s rapid adoption, please join CRMCA for an informative practitioner panel discussing local projects, PLC pouring experiences and best specification practices. 


Learning Objectives:


  • Learn the history and reasons behind the market shift to PLC/Type 1L 

  • Understand the positive project impacts of using PLC/Type 1L from a technical and sustainability perspective

  • Hear from diverse industry professionals and project team members on local market experiences using PLC/Type 1L

  • Explore common market misconceptions around the durability, finishability and overall properties of PLC/Type 1L

  • Identify best specification practices around PLC/Type 1L
