Low-Carbon Alternative Cements Consensus Committee (IS-LCCC)

ICC 1155 Standard for Low-Carbon Alternative Cements Used in Concrete

The first edition of ICC 1155 is being developed under the Code Council’s ANSI Accredited Consensus Procedures.

The Code Council is developing this new performance standard for the assessment of low-carbon alternative cements used in concrete. The cement industry is responsible for about 8% of the CO2 emissions for the globe.  With the increased attention to the effects of global CO2 production, there is a need for low carbon alternative cement that has the proper physical properties in accordance with model building codes and the referenced standards within.  A standard will provide requirements for those physical properties that could be referenced in the International Building Code (IBC).

A call for committee has been posted to solicit committee members of various interest categories to create balance on the committee in accordance with ANSI’s Essential Requirements. The ICC Board of Directors will make all final appointments.

The Code Council adheres to openness and transparency in our Standards development process. All ICC Standards committee meetings are open to the public. Any interested party can participate in committee meetings and can be considered by the committee for membership on any work-group that the committee creates.

Please contact the staff secretariat, Will Utsey, P.E., Regional VP of Engineering, wutsey@icc-es.org if you wish to be placed on the "interested party" list and receive information on how to participate in the public committee meetings or join a work group created by the committee.
