Aramco Becomes Founding Member of New Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials

AramcoNEx: An ACI Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials announces Aramco as its Founding Sustaining Member. The two organizations will work together to achieve more sustainable building solutions through advances in nonmetallic technologies.

Aramco is already a leader in the use of nonmetallic materials, deploying nonmetallic solutions within their oil and gas facilities for more than two decades. The company sees the potential for using nonmetallic advanced polymetric materials far surpassing both the oil and gas sector, leading to this initiative with NEx as part of a broader strategy to enter new markets, leveraging its hydrocarbon resources and technology to deliver advanced polymeric materials solutions across industries.

“We’d like to thank our Founding Sustaining Member, Aramco Americas, for their generous support of NEx in our mission to effectively meet the demands of a changing world,” said Jerzy Zemajtis, Executive Director, NEx: An ACI Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials. “The industry is pleased to have such a strong advocate of nonmetallic building materials at the forefront.”

NEx looks to draw additional partners from leading government agencies, technical societies, standard bodies, manufacturers and professionals. For further informatuion on how NEx is advancing nonmetallics, visit
