March 8, 2012  By  Scott Jamieson

March 8, 2012, Mississauga, ON – The Ontario, Stone, Sand & Gravel
Association (OSSGA), in partnership with the Ontario Hot Mix Producers
Association (OHMPA) and the Ready-Mixed Concrete Association of Ontario
(RMCAO), has jointly developed and updated an air emissions monitoring
software program, the ECHO 127, for the 2011 reporting year.

OSSGA, OHMPA and RMCAO are committed to providing user-friendly tools to help aggregate, concrete and asphalt producers calculate annual emissions produced on their sites to be filed with the National Pollutant Release Inventory as required under the Ministry of the Environment’s O. Reg 127.

Valued at approximately $1,000, ECHO 127 is available at a special rate to association members. Each of the three non-profit industry associations involved will determine the cost assigned to its respective members.

ECHO 127 is also available for purchase to the general public.


The calculator applies to industries with the following NAICS codes:

  • 212323 Sand and Gravel Mining and Quarrying
  • 324121 Asphalt Paving Mixture and Block Manufacturing
  • 327320 Ready-Mix Concrete Manufacturing
