Central Concrete's Mixes will Reduce Carbon Footprint by One Million Lbs. In
CO[2] Emissions
Central Concrete will be supplying an estimated 12,000 cubic yards of its
concrete, including low-CO[2] mixes for the San Jose Earthquakes Stadium's
foundations and walls, interior and exterior slabs, and other applications.
Central Concrete's low-CO[2] mixes significantly cut the Portland cement
content of the concrete mix (a major contributor to green house gas emissions)
and will result in an estimated net savings of one million pounds in CO[2]
emissions from embodied carbon, compared to traditional concrete mixes.

General contractor, Devcon Construction, Inc., and subcontractor Joseph J.
Albanese, Inc. selected Central Concrete for the Earthquakes Stadium project.

"We selected Central Concrete based on our shared partnerships working on
large-scale concrete projects, including the new San Francisco 49ers stadium,"
said Gary Filizetti, president, Devcon Construction, Inc. "The fact that
Central Concrete excels not only in concrete performance, but also in mixes
that reduce the carbon footprint, was very important to us."

"Central Concrete has been a key concrete supplier of ours for more than 55
years," said John Albanese, president and CEO, Joseph J. Albanese, Inc.
"Together, we share the same work ethic of 'just getting it done' with a
commitment to safety and quality. We look forward to working with Central
Concrete on this landmark project."
