ASTM Sponsors Workshop on E60 Standards for Cement and Concrete

ASTM's sustainability committee has adopted standards that may impact cement and concrete-based building materials.

A workshop on "Implications of ASTM E60 Standards on Sustainability for Cement and Concrete" will be held June 14 at the Marriott Anaheim in Anaheim, Calf. Sponsored by ASTM Committee C01 on Cement, the free workshop is being held in conjunction with the June standards development meetings of the committee.

Committee E60 on Sustainability has adopted standards that could have implications for cement and concrete-based building materials, including ASTM E1991, Standard Guide for Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Building Products, and ASTM E2129, Standard Practice for Data Collection for Sustainability Assessment of Building Products.

This workshop will introduce the concepts and terminology used in E60 standards to the cement and concrete standards development communities and will facilitate collaborative efforts to provide E60 with the technical expertise of these communities regarding the manufacture of cement and concrete-based building products.

Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop and closes June 8. For more information, visit www.astm.org/c01work0611.htm.

ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world.
