National Ready Mix Concrete Co significantly reduces carbon in their concrete production equation by transitioning 120 vehicles (mixers, dumps and tankers) from diesel to compressed renewable natural gas (CNG/RNG) as its main fleet fuel.
This reduces carbon from an add of 40kg CO2-eq/yd for diesel fuel down to a minus of 80 CO2/yd for CNG.
“There is no other low- or zero-emission technology available that could enable a heavy-duty fleet like ours, running routes from Southern to Central California, to offset the level of greenhouse gas emissions reductions we’ve achieved.”, say NRMCC President Steve Lode.
NRMCC is the first Los Angeles market ready mixed concrete operator to implement a set of digital applications to streamline EPD (environmental product declaration) preparation through a partnership with Climate Earth. NRMCC’s enterprise library is approaching 6,000 EPDs.
“We can now generate immediate, precise environmental and performance matrix for complex concrete mix designs any time in the project cycle,” says NRMCC Director of Technical services, John Halverson.
