An innovative lower carbon cement known as Portland-Limestone Cement (PLC) can reduce your carbon footprint by 10% and this advanced product, engineered with higher limestone content, is readily available in Southern California.

National Cement produces PLC at their Lebec, California operation and makes this advanced type of cement available to its ready mix subsidiaries in the Bakersfield and Los Angeles markets.

"As you know, cement is the essential ingredient in ready mix concrete, and PLC provides the same strength, durability and resiliency you’re accustomed to with the added benefits of environmental performance," says Chris Heilmann, Vice President of Sales for National Cement Southern California.

The Portland Cement Association, the organization serving America’s cement manufacturers, has launched a new national campaign to increase awareness of PLC among specifiers, architects, engineers, and producers.
