Angelus Block offers from select locations CMU, pavers, and SRW units with postconsumer / preconsumer recycled content blends (crushed reclaimed and waste product as aggregate replacement). Many stock items contain recycled material.¹ The result is a corresponding reduction in consumption of virgin aggregates.
CMU are available with postconsumer amounts up to 25%¹. Angelus Block has received an ICC-ES VARTM Environmental Report for cmu with a minimum 25% postconsumer recycled content, VAR-1018, issued by ICC Evaluation Service under its ICC-ES Environmental Programs, which provide a comprehensive evaluation of the sustainable attributes of building products.
The VAR for Angelus Block encompasses production plants in four counties and regions: Ventura (Oxnard, California), Los Angeles (Gardena, California), Orange (Orange, California), and San Bernardino/Riverside (Fontana, California). This uniquely offers proximity to all of Southern California for such high postconsumer content.
Applicability is noted in VAR-1018 to rating systems, codes, and standards, including International Green Construction Code, CalGreen, ASHRAE Standard 189.1, National Green Building Standard, LEED, ANSI/GBI 01, and CSI GreenFormat.
