When you specify fly ash as replacement for cement in concrete, you help reduce CO 2 emissions from cement production, conserve landfill space, and decrease water usage. You also enhance workability and chem- ical attack resistance, increase strength and produce more durable concrete. SPECIFY FLY ASH (a re c o v e red resource) as a replacement for cement in concrete. 1-888-236-6236 www.flyash.com CONCRETE CALENDAR 2010 CONTRIBUTING AUTHORS Dr. Henry G.
