Aggregate Industries first to offer optimum sustainable ready-mixed concrete

September 2009 

We are the first company to offer innovative ‘Specification Desk’ technology to calculate the optimum sustainable mix for ready-mixed concrete. Enabling the company to quickly and accurately advise customers on what products and mixes will provide the greenest solution for their project, the new technology is set to revolutionise the way ready mixed concrete is procured.

Developed by BRE Global, using data provided by ourselves, the software is the first of its kind on the market and will assess Ecopoints per m3 and CO2 equ (100 yrs) per m3 as well as providing indicative Green Guide ratings for mixes. Calculations are based on changes to input material use.

Shamir Ghumra, our Head of Sustainability said; “Despite the economic climate, sustainability hurdles continue to appear as well as clients setting out their own policies of how goods and services should be procured. This latest technology, which is currently only available from Aggregate Industries, will become integral in the procurement / planning process.”

Victoria Blake at BRE Global said: “We are pleased to offer a tool that allows Aggregate Industries to evaluate, model and potentially improve the environmental performance of its ready-mixed concrete products.  This tool, the first of its kind, will provide manufacturers with a means of optimising their input material use”.
