As COVID-19 continues to evolve, the Australasian (iron and steel) Slag Association would like to reassure our members that we are actively monitoring and responding accordingly to Government updates.
The Cooperative Research Centre for SmartCrete has been given funding.
The CPEE has been forced to postpone a large number of upcoming courses.
Interesting work is being done with carbon-reducing processes in California and beyond.
India’s leading companies involved in the construction, infrastructure, and ready-mix concrete sectors have been given the green light to trial EdenCrete (a carbon nanotube enriched liquid) with geopolymer cement. By exploring the potential of the carbon-strengthened additive, India aims to combine EdenCrete with high pozzolan (fly ash, silica fume, slag) concrete mixes to optimise performance and increase cement efficiency.
The rising need for more housing, buildings and developments to shape our growing population is simultaneously sparking concerns of carbon emissions and its impact on future generations.
We take a look back at all the wonderful achievements of the CRC for Low Carbon Living.

The 29th Biennial National Conference of the Concrete Institute of Australia was held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, NSW. Taking place from 8th of September to 11th of September 2019. The focused theme for Concrete 2019 was: 'Concrete in Practice –Progress through Knowledge'.
A number of Australian Standards in accordance with Methods for the Sampling & Testing of Aggregates have been amended recently. The purpose of the Standard is to provide general information on the requirements of standard pieces of equipment used throughout the AS 1141 series for the testing of aggregate and rock for engineering purposes.
The 10th EUROPEAN SLAG CONFERENCE will take place in the at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Thessaloniki, Greece, from October 8th to 11th 2019, organized by the Laboratory of Building Materials of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
In June 2019, the Sydney City Council along with University of NSW and Wagners Concrete worked together to lay 15 metres of Geopolymer Concrete in a busy street of Sydney. The project was part of 7 years of research together with UNSW and the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, which saw the concrete laid to undergo 5 years of testing against regular concrete laid as a control.
It is with deep sadness that the Australasian (iron & steel) Slag Association (ASA) learnt last week that Doug Prosser, OAM and inaugural Executive Officer of the Australasian (iron & steel) Slag Association (1989 - 1998) passed away last week after a short battle with illness. He is survived by his beloved wife Marie. All members past and present offer his family our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
In the first trial of its kind, we’ve taken industrial waste from coal-fired power stations and steel manufacturing to create a new roadway. Working with researchers from the University of NSW, we’ve replaced a section of roadway on Wyndham Street in Alexandria to test the green concrete’s durability. Made from fly ash and blast furnace slag, geopolymer concrete is a sustainable blend of concrete and recycled materials.
