Building project teams seek concrete mixes optimized for performance, schedule considerations, and reduced environmental impact. The NYC metro area generates far more post-consumer glass for recycling than we have consistent end uses for. Testing is showing that ground glass pozzolan is a high-performance, low-environmental impact option for replacement of portland cement in concrete mixes that currently use fly ash, slag, and silica fume as supplementary cementitious material.
Please join us for a lively panel discussion amongst a group of industry practitioners and experts exploring this use of ground glass in concrete, including representatives from SIMS Recycling, Eastern Concrete, LERA, Kingston Block, City College of NY, Euclid Chemical, O&G Industries, and Severud, moderated by Amanda Kaminsky from The Durst Organization.
