Improving concrete mix designs through aggregate optimization is critical to achieve the concrete and cement industry goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) are potentially economically and environmentally advantageous materials in some applications and will promote preservation of raw material resources. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, April 25, 2024 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will focus on aggregate optimization for concrete mix designs as well as RAP and RCA applications and how each impacts sustainability of aggregates.
This webinar is a follow on to TRB Webinar: Aggregate Sustainability—Production held on May 15, 2023.

This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Aggregates.
Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information. Contact Patrice Davenport to inquire about becoming a TRB sponsor or global affiliate organization.
A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
