For the first time in two years, the ACI Foundation’s Concrete Innovation Council (CIC) successfully hosted an in-person Technology Forum. The sold-out event took place August 30- September 1, 2022, in Saint Paul, MN. The Technology Forum is an industry-exclusive educational and networking event for concrete professionals.
The Technology Forum provided attendees the opportunity to connect with representatives from material suppliers, architecture & engineering firms, contractors, academics, top-level executives, and regulatory agencies.
“It was great to be back in-person for this year's Technology Forum,” stated Ann Masek, Executive Director, ACI Foundation. “This year's Forum was a high-quality and thoughtful program, full of great discussion with forward-thinking and collaborative insights.”
The 2022 Technology Forum included three technology showcases, twelve presentations, and a debate. Technology showcases highlighted: A Carbon Negative Method for Producing Portland Cement & SCMs, Concrete Sensors to measure Curing and Machine Learning Methods for Producing Low-Carbon Concrete. Key points of the new FRP bar code were introduced. Legal issues in concrete construction were discussed and progress for Integration of Alternative Cements into Building Codes was summarized.
