Dual Market Transformation: Concrete & Recycled Glass
Thursday, Jan 21, 2016
For years, building developers and their teams have searched for ways to optimize concrete mixes for performance, schedule, and reduced environmental impact. Simultaneously, the New York City metro area has been generating far more post-consumer glass than recyclers have a consistent end market use for. In an effort to address these dual challenges, pragmatic thought leaders brought key stakeholders from multiple industry sectors together to collaborate on a solution. Team members worked together over the course of 18 months to begin piloting use of locally recycled ground glass as an ingredient in high-performing concrete with reduced environmental impact.
Now, learn what was involved in identifying this solution, whether the idea can be replicated in concrete mixes across the country, and what will it take for the larger cast-in-place concrete and glass recycling marketplaces to be transformed.
