The RMC Research & Education Foundation has released a new CD, ìResearch in Support of Sustainable Development.î The CD includes all of the foundation's published reports and studies on pervious concrete, the ìReady Mixed Concrete Industry LEED Reference Guideî and the ìCrushed Returned Concrete as Aggregates for New Concreteî final report. The CD was unveiled during the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association's annual convention and ConExpo 2008 show held in March.
ìFew construction projects are planned today without consideration for how they may utilize materials and practices that make the project more sustainable. Concrete provides many opportunities to help make projects more ëgreení and the Foundation is proud to present this new CD of deliverables that demonstrate many of concrete's environmental benefits,î says Julie Garbini, the foundation's executive director. ìMany of the reports included on this CD are available for download individually from the foundation's Web site. However, combining them together on one CD illuminates the fact that concrete has a great deal to offer as a sustainable building material.î
