“Workshop on Implications of ASTM E60 Standards on Sustainability for Cement and Concrete” is scheduled June 14 at the Marriott Anaheim (Calif.), amid Committee C01 on Cement and Committee C9 on Concrete meetings. Organizers note that ASTM Committee E60 on Sustainability has adopted standards that could have implications for cement and cement-based building materials, including E 1991 Standard Guide for Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Building Products, and E 2129 Standard Practice for Data Collection for Sustainability Assessment of Building Products.

Co-chaired by Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research’s Stephen Lane ([email protected]) and Portland Cement Association’s Jenny Hitch ([email protected]), the workshop will introduce E60 concepts and terminology to the cement and concrete standards development communities. It will likewise facilitate collaborative efforts to provide E60 members technical expertise surrounding processes for cement and cement-based products. A technical program with paper titles, and presenters is scheduled for posting at by March. Free, online registration will open approximately eight weeks before the workshop. Registration assistance and program details can be obtained from ASTM’s Hannah Sparks, Symposia Operations, [email protected], 610/832-9677; or Staff Manager Scott Orthey, [email protected], 610/832- 9730.
