PCL One Year Later: Demonstrating Progress
Date: February 15, 2023
Time: Noon – 1:00 pm CST
Speaker: Jamie Farny, Portland Cement Association

Description: Everywhere you look, the interest in sustainability is strong. This presentation will review how cement and concrete continue to evolve a year after the release of Portland Cement Association’s Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality. Many cement producers have announced a shift toward production of portland-limestone cement, or PLC, to reduce their own carbon footprint; many designers have embraced its use. We’ll highlight some recent examples of PLC projects and look at how lower carbon cement fits into the broader efforts of the construction industry to chip away at the environmental footprint associated with creating resilient infrastructure. After this program, participants will have increased knowledge on achieving more sustainable concrete as they understand how to use PLC and other emerging technology and how to quantify impacts associated with them.
Speaker Bio: Jamie Farny, Portland Cement Association
Jamie Farny promotes the use of cement-based materials for various applications by focusing on sustainability, resilience, energy efficiency, durability, and other key benefits. He participated in development of Portland Cement Association’s campaign to raise awareness of portland-limestone cements (PLCs) for improved sustainability of concrete construction as well as the PCA Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality. He holds a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Sponsors: This webinar was developed cooperatively by concrete-related associations from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The goal of the cooperative effort is to bring a greater awareness of cast-in-place concrete to the design and construction communities via quality continuing education programs.
