Extensive research and testing have shown that several types of ground glass can perform well as a pozzolanic material in concrete. Supported by these results, a new specification ASTM C1866/C1866M, “Standard Specification for Ground-Glass Pozzolan for Use in Concrete,” was published earlier this year. This article provides much of the background information and industry context that accompanied the balloting of this new document.
