Program Set for 8th Asphalt Shingle Recycling Forum
Leaders of the shingle recycling industry and asphalt plant operators to gather in Cincinatti, October 18-19
Tours of an asphalt shingle recycling plant and the asphalt plant next door to it that is using the recycled asphalt shingle (RAS) in its end products is a highlight of the 8th Shingle Recycling Forum, set for October 18-19, 2018, in Cincinnati, where the leaders of the shingle recycling industry and the asphalt plant operators who use the material gather to learn the latest in the marketplace.
A top-notch program has been developed for the event, which is organized by the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association, and co-sponsored by the National Asphalt Pavement Association, Federal Highway Administration, Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association, and Ohio EPA. Corporate sponsors are the Asphalt Shingle Grinding Service, GAF, and Rotochopper.
Much of the program focuses on the nitty-gritty details of using RAS in hot mix, including focuses on mix design and binder replacement. Included are sessions on quality control and shingle recycling operations, as well as alternative uses for RAS. A key part of the event is the inclusion of several state DOT personnel from across the country, who are not only there to learn about RAS use in the highway environment, but also share their experiences with the material in their respective states.
"The Shingle Recycling Forum series has proven to be the event where the industry gathers to learn about the latest technology and innovations," says Dave Stanczak, VP, Southwind RAS, and Chair of the CDRA's Shingle Recycling Committee.
