NRMCA is compiling through April 1 surveys of electricity, diesel fuel, natural gas and propane consumption data for ready mixed production. An easily completed Excel document, the 40-point survey supports an NRMCA–Environmental Protection Agency memorandum of understanding to collect baseline energy use in transit and central mixed production and fleet operations.
The association and EPA Energy Star program staff will tailor energy management tools ready mixed producers can use to lower electricity and fuel consumption. The survey can be downloaded from the NRMCA Operations, Equipment and Safety Committee page. Additional information can be obtained from NRMCA Senior V.P. of Compliance & Operations Gary Mullings, [email protected].
