26 • May 2019 www.concreteproducts.com NEWS SCOPE PROMOTION The Texas Aggregates & Concrete Association has launched a campaign to build awareness of members' businesses and associated indus- tries, while spotlighting employees who make production and delivery possible. #WeRTexas factors Lone Star State population growth of approximately 1,400 people per day and these material figures 10 years out, as measured against present annual shipment levels: 15 million to 50 million more tons of aggregate; 3 million to 10 million more yards of ready mixed; and, 1 million to 3 million more tons of cement. "Few people realize how much material is required to build the things they take for granted every day as they go about their busy lives," says TACA CEO David Perkins. "We launched WeRTexas so that Texas lawmakers, residents and businesses are aware of how important these industries are to the quality of our lives, how the materials are produced and that member companies are the ones who deliver these essentials to the community— every day, safely and reliably." Texas producers populate campaign with metrics, team member kudos An early campaign message spotlights TACA members' role in mobilizing San Antonio youth. TEXANS RELY ON CONCRETE In addition to the next decade's mate- rial demand trajectory, research supporting #WeRTexas reveals additional startling num- bers as the Lone Star State approaches 2050, when TACA members stand to see present annual demand plus 124 million to 179 mil- lion more tons of aggregate; 25 million to 36 million more yards of ready mixed; and, 7.5 million to 11 million more tons of cement. — www.tx-taca.org/wertexas Complete Recovery -Aggregate recovery -Gray water management -Filter press adaptable Basic Separation -Aggregate recovery enviro-port.com | 800-356-8106
