The Eighth Shingle Recycling Forum Oct. 18-19, 2017, in Cincinnati, will bring together leaders of the shingle recycling industry and the asphalt plant operators who use the material gather to learn the latest in the marketplace. The event is organized by the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA), and co-sponsored by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), Federal Highway Administration (FHA), Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) and Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
The forum will include 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.
The program will cover RAS in hot mix, including focuses on mix design and binder replacement. Sessions on quality control and shingle recycling operations, as well as alternative uses for RAS also will be discussed.
A key part of the event is the inclusion of several state department of transportation (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, vice president, Southwind RAS, and chair of the CDRA’s shingle recycling committee.
