Concrete Block is Cutting Carbon. Now.

CCMPA would like to give a shout out to our members, many of whom are actively and aggressively pursuing the reduction of their respective carbon footprints in the production of concrete block. Our recent study revealed that an impressive 70% of all concrete block in Canada is now being produced with GUL (PLC) (Or other low carbon SCM blends), instead of the traditionally used GU;  this fact means that concrete block production is setting an industry-wide precedent in the utility of, and conversion to, lower carbon cement / cement blends. We are still facing logistical challenges in Atlantic and the Midwest, but we will continue until we reach 100% conversion.
