ISI Webinar: Light is Beautiful: Contributions of Manufactured Lightweight Aggregates to Sustainable Infrastructure
Presented by Fariborz Tehrani, Expanded Shale, Clay and Slate Institute and Archie Filshill, Aero Aggregates of North America, LLC

Performance of structural and non-structural materials contributes to the sustainability and resilience of infrastructures through preservation of natural resources and reduction of environmental footprints. This presentation provides an overview of two classes of manufactured lightweight aggregates, including expanded shale, clay and slate (ESCS) and ultra-lightweight foamed glass aggregates (UL-FGA), and their applications in civil infrastructure. The focus will be on how these materials fit within the 5 categories of Envision and discuss their benefits from environmental, social, economic and technical perspectives. The outcome of this presentation facilitates decision-making for project managers, program advisors, and planners.
