RMCMA hosts Lecture on Technologies shaping RMC industries in Asia-Pacific Countries

RMCMA's knowledge sharing initiative started almost at the same time as the formation of the association in 2002.

With the launch of its website in 2008, RMCMA included a knowledge centre section where it hosts a number of useful short articles for RMC industry professionals. The signing of an MoU with NRMCA of USA in 2013 for Concrete Technologist India (CTI) Training and Certification course, added one more feather to RMCMA's cap. Through this initiative alone more 150 engineers have taken the CTI course.

As the membership and associate membership of RMCMA is expanding, the channel for meeting the mission of disseminating the latest information on concrete related topics, is further strengthening.

As a result, it was possible to organise an exclusive technical lecture with the help of one of our Associate Member- BASF Ltd.

Dr. Viswanath Mahadevan, Head product Development, BASF Asia Pacific delivered a lecture on "Technologies that are shaping RMC Industries in Asia Pacific Countries" to a packed audience at Garware Institute , University of Mumbai, Mumbai, Friday, Mar 3/2017.

The lecture saw participants from UltraTech Cement Ltd, ACC Ltd, Godrej & Boyce Mfg Co Ltd., IJM Concrete Products P Ltd, Lafarge India Ltd, RDC Concrete India Pvt Ltd. RMC ReadyMix (India) - a division of Prism Ltd., Skyway RMC Plants Pvt Ltd etc. Among the participants were senior executives and business heads of some of the prominent brands in the RMC Industry. The lecture gave an opportunity to young engineers to learn about mega trends in RMC industry in countries such as China and Japan. Some of topics discussed were dispersing technology, clay mitigating technology (clay in sand), fibre technology and developments in freeze thaw resistance of concrete.

The evening lecture was followed by high tea. The relaxing atmosphere at the Kalina campus afforded a networking opportunity to the invited RMC consultants, user industry representatives, RMC industry suppliers of hardware and equipment and RMC producers.

The lecture was preceded by an introduction by Mr. Vijay Kulkarni. Mr. Ramesh Joshi, President, RMCMA also spoke on the occasion, highlighting the efforts being done by RMCMA on the knowledge-sharing front.
