Green Building Systems Division

Why build green? Because it's good for the environment! At Performance Concrete, we are committed to protecting the environment through the use of green building materials. So-called "green" structures are more energy-efficient, minimize pollution and waste, and reduce the overall impact to the environment.

Environmentally-friendly and energy-conserving, AAC meets all the requirements of our modern age. Absolutely no pollutants or hazardous wastes are generated in the process and there is no waste of precious raw materials. Pure AAC, not containing any foreign materials, can be recycled into other useful products.

Even the production method conserves energy since steam curing is carried out at high pressures and thermal energy is recovered and reused for maximum efficiency. Production trimmings can also be fully recycled, again making AAC a highly efficient and environmentally compatible building material.

AAC has many qualities that make it a great "green" product:

  • Recyclable - AAC debris can be used in the manufacture of new materials
  • Inert, non-toxic, and does not produce indoor air pollution
  • Fire-Resistant - No concern for toxic gases/vapors in the event of a fire
  • Energy Efficient - Energy Star rated product
  • Pest-Resistant - Inorganic material requires no need for chemical treatments
  • Reusable - Many times, AAC panels can be disassembled and reused

Green buildings have many other advantages, too. They cost less to operate because of the reduced energy usage, require less maintenance, have better indoor air quality, and have excellent resale value. Building green shows your, and our, commitment to the environment and gives you the assurance that the mark you leave will benefit the future of our Earth.
