The Northwest Cement Council has assembled a collection of Handouts and Summary Handouts that are available for use in presentations, briefings and round table discussions. These resources are free to use. Many are based on research activities undertaken by the Council or its various members.
The Northwest Cement Council is working with a number of organizations on research on strategies to promote the use of concrete and related building products that are better able to withstand the climate-related challenges of a changing world environment. There are a number of areas of research the Council and its various members and partners are pursuing. Details on the research currently underway are provided below.
