MGM Springfield Resort and Casino in Springfield, Massachusetts was made with 120,000 CMUs infused with recycled CO using the CarbonCure Technology. As a result, A. Jandris & Sons saved a total of 1,900 lbs of CO₂ emissions from entering the atmosphere.
The amount of CO₂ saved in the MGM Springfield project is equivalent to the amount of CO₂ sequestered by 1 acre of forest in one year, or 14 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.
"MGM Resorts believes that green building practices and sustainable operations are the keys to being good corporate citizens. Jandris & Sons’ concrete masonry with CarbonCure reduced 1,900 pounds of embodied carbon in the MGM Springfield development. This carbon reduction innovation helps to contribute to MGM Resorts sustainability leadership objectives."
