IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Conference 2023: Sustainable strength through innovation
The 65th annual IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Conference will be held in Dallas, Texas, April 23-27th, 2023. The conference features technical papers and presentations, process training sessions, roundtable discussions led by industry thought leaders, and much more. Topics of discussion will focus on timely subject matter including: carbon capture, blended cements, SCMs, supply chain challenges, and sustainability in the manufacturing process.
As in past conferences, attendees will have numerous opportunities to network with over 150 exhibitors showcasing the latest in cement industry technology and manufacturing over the span of the conference.
Ed Sullivan, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of the PCA, will again present his Economic Outlook for the industry and of special note this year, we will be honored to be hearing from Keynote Speaker Brian Shul, a Vietnam-era attack pilot and retired major in the United States Air Force. He flew over 200 combat missions and was shot down near the end of the war. He was so badly burned he was given little chance to live. He returned to flying and completed a 20 year career in the Air Force including flying the SR-71 Blackbird, a Strategic Reconnaissance Aircraft Capable Of Reaching Speeds Over Mach 3. The SR-71 holds the record as the world‘s fastest stealth aircraft. You will not want to miss hearing this inspirational story.
The conference working group chairs have worked diligently to provide papers and presentations representing the hard work of authors looking to provide their research and thoughts on topics affecting cement manufacturing. The organizers look forward to sharing more about these papers soon. Attendee and exhibitor registration can be found at www.cementconference.org.
