Extension of the SOS Project to China

A key Canadian initiative in addressing the issue of Green House Gas emissions related to cement and concrete is the development of the SOS program.  The SCM Optimization System (SOS) project – led by EcoSmart and involving a consortium of Canadian universities, cement companies, government organizations, engineering and construction companies, architects and developers – aims to develop a web-based computer application to provide online expert guidance concerning all aspects of performance of concrete structures that incorporate Supplementary Cementing Materials (SCMs) at all stages of design and construction – through concept, structural design, materials selection and proportioning, to construction management and implementation.

The attached report presents a proposal to expand this initiative to China
