“It is important to acknowledge the outstanding and innovative use of slag cement in projects across the USA,” stated Ed Griffith, President, Slag Cement Association. “The construction industry looks to these projects each year as examples of the increased durability, resilience and sustainability that slag cement brings to a concrete’s mix design.”
