  • Recycled Concrete Aggregate is produced from the Construction and Demolition waste such as concrete from building construction.
  • Reducing the amount of OPC in concrete mixtures creates a significant opportunity for reducing global CO2 emissions.
  • Concrete that uses less energy in its production & produces less carbon dioxide than normal traditional concrete.
  • In Qatar, upgrades have been implemented to Qatar Construction Specifications (QCS 2014) and the concrete currently produced in the country has a lower carbon footprint.
  • Saudi Arabia is gravitating towards concrete of higher durability, which has led to a growing demand for admixtures based on polycarboxylic ethers (PCEs).
  • Structures built using green concrete have a better chance of surviving a fire it can withstand temperatures of up to 2400 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.
  • Emirate of Abu Dhabi is promoting the application of recycled material.
  • New applications are being developed for roads, environment advantage, for drainages, which are prone to flooding/ water management.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
