NEW YORK, March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China Advanced Construction Materials Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CADC) ("China ACM" or the "Company"), a provider of ready-mix concrete and related technical services in China, on March 2, 2015, announced a recent publication of technical standards for recycling concrete products and the production of such products from construction waste and building debris in Beijing.
The Alliance of Construction Waste Recycling Technologies of China, (the "Alliance"), which is chaired by the Company, published the foregoing technical standards for its members recently. The Standards provide an industry guidance to standardize the production of concrete products from construction wastes. The Standards is the first of its kind in construction wastes recycling in China.
The Alliance is the first and currently the largest autonomous cooperative association of construction waste recycling in China. The Alliance consists of member companies and participants who are voluntarily contributing, and collaborating to develop new technologies in construction waste recycling. In 2009, the Ministry of Science and Technology of China (the "Ministry", the "Government"), issued an executive order (2009, #648) to advocate the foundation of technologies cooperatives to promote technologies innovation among industries. In the executive order, the Ministry announced a series of policies on how the Government would support the Ministry-approved cooperatives for technology development strategically and financially. Together with other key members, the Company founded the Alliance, and the Ministry approved the Alliance's charter in 2013. The Company has chaired the Alliance since then.
The Standards include chapters of detailed technical specifications on how the recycling concrete products shall be, the compliance requirements that recycling productions shall met, and other related measures that environmental protections and quality assurance shall address. With these chapters, the Standards had provided a norm to the construction waste recycling systems. Its codes intend to establish the uniformed engineering criteria in the recycling production processes. Since the publication, the Standards had received large consensus from technical experts and been largely appraised by members and non-member entities in the industry. The standards had become effective in the Alliance from the beginning of 2015.
"As the chair of the Alliance, we contributed most to the draft of the Standards. We are very happy for the Standards to become effective," said Mr. Xianfu Han, chairman and CEO of the Company, "we are committed to adopt the entire Standards in our business. Under the Standards, we will advance our recycling technologies with big strides."
