The inaugural gathering of stakeholders exploring non-hydraulic alternatives to portland cement is set for June 15 in Toronto, amid ASTM C01 Committee on Cement meetings. C01 has organized a subcommittee to develop standards for the materials, recognizing design, engineering and construction professionals’ interest in new concrete binders.

Committee members invite cement and concrete producers, contractors and other parties interested in non-hydraulic cements to join the subcommittee. C01 Committee Week meetings run June 14-15.
