LEED is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council to evaluate buildings' environmental performance. Paving material with a solar reflectance index (SRI) of at least 29 for a minimum of 50 percent of the site hardscape (including roads, sidewalks, .

  • Laboratory studies of Miocene limestone in Sri Lanka ...

    Geologically 10% of Sri Lanka is made up of Miocene limestone, which covers the northern and northwestern coastal belt of the island. It is used as a raw material for various industries, but at present only cement and lime are used for the construction industry.

  • limestone - Uni Salzburg

    Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), usually calcite, sometimes aragonite. It may contain considerable amounts of magnesium carbonate (dolomite). Most limestones have a granular texture, but limestone can also be massive, crystalline or clastic.

    Vertical recharge to a confined limestone in northwest Sri Lanka. J. Hydrol., 63: 287--297. The water resources of a Miocene limestone aquifer in northwest Sri Lanka were inves- tigated. The limestone aquifer receives recharge although it is buried beneath a thick sequence of Quaternary deposits of low permeability which cover the whole basin.

  • Fact Sheet Shows SRI Advantages of Indiana Limestone ...

    BLOOMINGTON, IN -- A new fact sheet from the Indiana Limestone Co. presents Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) performance data for four of the company's stone products. As the sheet makes clear, all of the products exceed LEED 2009 and LEED v4 requirements. SRI measures the ability of a constructed surface to reflect solar heat. Designing with high-SRI materials like Indiana Limestone products is ...

  • Limestone: The Calcium Carbonate Chemical Sedimentary Rock

    Limestone, as used by the minerals industry, is any rock composed mostly of calcium carbonate (CaCO 3). Although limestone is common in many parts of the United States, it is critically absent from some. Limestone is used to produce Portland cement, as aggregate in concrete and asphalt, and in an ...
