Using ground glass Pozzolans instead of cement in concrete is a viable and sustainable solution. If you would like to learn about this nascent industry sector that uses locally-sourced, post-consumer glass to make an environmentally preferable building material, join the webinar on Dec 14. The free webinar is co-hosted by NERC and NEWMOA.

The three presenters will speak about the properties, performance, applications, and environmental benefits of Pozzolans. They include: 


Patrick Grasso, Co-managing Partner, Urban Mining. The company manufactures Pozzotive®, a sustainable building material derived from post-consumer waste glass. Used as a cement replacement, Pozzotive can reduce the carbon footprint of concrete by up to 40% while providing a large-scale solution to the ongoing challenges that waste glass creates in our recycling stream. 


TJ Oneglia, Vice President of Construction Materials for O&G Industries.  He has 17 years of experience in the ready-mix concrete industry. O&G operates eight concrete plants in Connecticut and oversees two subsidiary concrete companies in White Plains and Brewster, NY. Mr. Oneglia’s attention is highly focused on ways to make the concrete industry more sustainable. He has a degree in Mathematics from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. He also served as a pilot in the US Navy for nine years.


Kim Bawden Program Manager at the Green Technology Accelerator Center (GTAC) and Senior Staff Engineer at the NYS Pollution Prevention Institute at RIT. Her primary role is to provide technical assistance to industry.  Ms. Bawden supports manufacturers throughout the supply chain by assessing manufacturing processes for improvement opportunities, performing material and energy balances for baseline metric quantification, researching and identifying environmentally preferable and cost-effective alternatives, and by assisting companies in meeting sustainability certifications/scorecards.
