DMI Fly Ash is the only locally produced Class F fly ash in California, providing the highest value in LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points for sustainable concrete.
Use of Fly Ash can earn points in the increasingly important LEED™ system of evaluating and rating buildings, developed by the US Green Building Council (ref. US Green Building Council).
Recycled content in concrete products. The requirements of this credit are for using materials with recycled content. One point is awarded if the sum of the post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the pre-consumer recycled content constitutes at least 10% of the total value of the materials in the project. The value of the recycled content of a material is the weight of the recycled content in the item divided by the weight of all materials in that item, and then multiplied by the total cost of the item. Supplementary cementitious materials, such as fly ash, silica fume, and slag cement are considered pre-consumer. Furthermore, using recycled concrete or slag instead of extracted aggregates would qualify as post-consumer. Although most reinforcing bars are manufactured from recycled steel, in LEED™, reinforcing is not considered part of concrete. Reinforcing material should be considered as a separate item. This credit is worth 1 point for the quantities quoted above and 2 points if the quantities are doubled to 20% combined post-consumer plus one-half pre-consumer recycled content (ref. Portland Cement Association).
Environmental value in using fly ash in concrete: For every ton of fly ash used to replace cement in concrete.
Enough energy is saved to provide electricity to an average American home for 24 days.
The landfill space conserved equals 455 days of solid waste produced by the average American.
The reduction in CO2 emissions equals 2 months of emissions from an automobile.
*Concrete mix designs containing fly ash may vary between 5%- 90% depending on the application. Confirm concrete mix designs before using any admixtures.
Class “F” Fly Ash makes concrete better. Fly Ash is a pozzolanic cement replacement that enhances the performance of concrete by increasing compressive strength, improving workability, durability, long term strength, resistance to freeze-thaw damage and reduces permeability, efflorescence shrinkage, thermal cracking, alkali silica reaction and sulfate attack in concrete. Basically using fly ash makes better concrete that is more economical and better for the environment.
