NRMCA Meets with House Committee Staff on Key Climate Legislation
Last week, the NRMCA Government Affairs team along with Exectuvie Vice President, Structures and Sustainability, Lionel Lemay met with key staffers on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee regarding legislation aimed at promoting technologies that reduce the emissions impact of manufacturing processes. The legislation, the Clean Industrial Technologies Act, provides funding for research in several focus areas, including industrial production processes, cement, alternative materials that produce fewer emissions during production, carbon capture technologies, use of alternative fuels, and opportunities for modeling and simulation to optimize the design of energy efficient and sustainable products.
Committee staff also consulted with NRMCA’s Colin Lobo and Karthik Obla on opportunities for adopting performance-based specifications to contribute to lowering emissions. The committee is interested in including a provision that encourages performance-based specifications in its legislation.
