We were joined on the podcast by experts in low carbon concrete including Dr. Peter Taylor P.E. (IL), FACI, Director, National Concrete Pavement Technology Center, Thomas Van Dam, Ph.D., P.E., FACI, Principal, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., and Eric Ferrebee, Senior Director of Technical Services at the American Concrete Pavement Association to preview their new upcoming online class on the applications of reduced carbon concrete.

Construction project specifications are changing because of client requirements for low-carbon materials. Understanding and accepting material differences is imperative to quality construction and engineering practices. These trends allow firms to provide expertise and consultation to achieve sustainable, resilient, and long-lasting results.

To facilitate the transition, the Inflation Reduction Act provides over $5 billion in grant funding to be used for three new Federal Highway Administration programs, including Low-Carbon Transportation Materials Grants. An anticipated $2 billion in funding will be announced to support transportation programs.

The online course begins on January 31st.  Registration information can be found here.
