NRMCA Member Takes Leadership Role in Sustainable Plant Certification

NRMCA Producer member Titan America became the leading sustainable concrete producer by certifying four plants in Virginia under the NRMCA Certified Sustainable Concrete Plant program. To certify, plant personnel use a document titled Sustainable Concrete Plant Guidelines that rates a plant’s level of sustainability within different credit categories, with the objective of reducing carbon footprint, energy consumption, water use and waste; increasing recycled content; and improving human health and social conditions. Plants can achieve between 0 and 100 points depending on how many sustainability credits are achieved and their level of performance within each credit. After a third-party audit, plants can obtain an NRMCA Sustainable Concrete Plant Certification. The following Titan plants received Bronze level certification:

• Bryan Park Ready Mix Concrete Plant, Richmond
• Clear Brook Ready Mix Concrete Plant, Clear Brook
• Suffolk Ready Mix Concrete Plant, Suffolk
• Stafford Ready Mix Concrete Plant, Falmouth
