She brings 20-plus years' financial experience, primarily in infrastructure sectors including the global building materials and construc- tion industries. Previously, Wade served on the Holcim Ltd. Board and was a member of its Governance and Strategy Committee. Wade becomes the seventh Summit Board member. "She brings a tremendous amount of industry expertise and financial acumen, hav- ing served on multiple boards and invested in numerous construction-related companies, [and] valuable insight to us as we continue to build our position in new and existing mar- kets," says Summit Materials CEO Tom Hill. Atlanta-based Argos USA has logged the first commercial deliveries of ready mixed concrete bearing recycled carbon dioxide and produced under license with CarbonCure Technologies of Nova Scotia. The producer deployed CO 2 -dosing equipment at its Cum- ming, Ga., batch plant, and continues to test strength development and other performance characteristics attributable to the gas when injected in ready mixed concrete. "Argos prides itself on displaying leadership in both sustainability and innovation," says Senior Director of Innovation Godwin Amekeudi. Adds Vice President of Ready Mix South- east Zone Bill Wagner, "As the concrete indus- try continues to shift towards sustainability, we're excited to lead this initiative and offer products made with CarbonCure's technology to our customers." CarbonCure has announced a series of partnerships with ready mixed concrete pro- ducers across the U.S. The technology has been licensed to U.S. and Canadian concrete masonry producers since 2012.
