Sources: Slag Cement Association, Farmington Hills, Mich.

The Slag Cement Association is finalizing the next version of a Product Category Rule informing ground granulated blast furnace slag producers’ Environmental Product Declarations.

A review committee of industry stakeholders has incorporated appropriate updates and opened the draft to public comment. Individuals and parties interested in reviewing the PCR can contact Andrea Burr, standards development liaison for NSF International’s National Center for Sustainability Standards, Ann Arbor, Mich., 734/913-5794; [email protected]. The document will succeed a charter version issued in August 2014 under ASTM International. Slag Cement PCR production follows the NSF Center’s April 2020 issuance of the North American Product Category Rule for Portland, Blended, Masonry, Mortar, and Stucco Cements, dubbed Cement PCR 2.0.
