CEMEX Provides World-Class Solutions for 315 Infrastructure Projects During 2012

MONTERREY, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX  ) announced today that, during 2012, it provided building solutions for the completion of 315 infrastructure projects —representing more than 8 million square meters of pavement for highways, mass transit projects, airport runways, and city streets.

Through projects such as the Metro Line in Panama, the first metro in Central America, and the Bus Rapid Transit systems in Mexico, CEMEX continues to innovate and provide state-of-the-art solutions for transportation systems that serve as critical connections between residents, their cities, and their world.

Concrete, an essential component for infrastructure development, has demonstrated better economic and environmental performance than competing materials. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has released research findings that will help set a new standard in life-cycle assessment modeling for building materials. The studies, which are part of an ongoing research initiative at the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSHub), quantify the environmental impact and costs of paving and building materials. The MIT CSHub is a research center established at MIT in collaboration with the Portland Cement Association and the Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) Research and Education Foundation.
