  • Managing Returned Concrete and Wash Water at an RMC Plant
    Presented by:
    Karthik Obla
    1.5 hours duration | Pub Code: PPV_MRCWW

    Every year, it is estimated that 2% to 10% (average of 5%) of the estimated 455 million cubic yards of ready mixed concrete produced in the U.S. (est. 2006) is returned to the concrete plant. Also it is estimated that 150 gallons of water is used to wash out a ready mixed concrete truck every day. There is also a lot of process water generated at ready mixed plants, including stormwater which MUST BE treated as process water if allowed to commingle with process water. A ready mixed concrete producer SHOULD handle the returned concrete and water from concreting operations at a plant in a sustainable commercially viable manner.

    This video will discuss the various options of handling returned concrete – in particular the research work conducted at NRMCA on the use of crushed concrete aggregates for new concrete. It will also discuss the options in reusing water from concrete production operations. Technical and operational issues will be covered.
