Program sessions include: How Department of Transportation (DOT) Personnel Can Get Shingles Approved; Operational Factors When Using Recycled Asphalt Shingles (RAS); Dealing With Sham Recycling Sites; Use of Shingles in Warm Mixes; Effect of Recovered Binders From Recycled Shingles; Basics of Shingle Recycling; and Best Practices on the Use of RAS.
There also will be tours of a local shingle manufacturing facility.
More than 350 people are expected to attend the event and participate in the associated exhibition area that will feature information on equipment and supplies for the recycling of asphalt shingles.
"The Shingle Recycling Forum's growth has mirrored that of the shingle recycling industry," says Jason Haus, CEO of Dem-Con, Shakopee, Minn., and chair of the CDRA Shingle Recycling Committee. "Virtually anyone participating in shingle recycling will be there."
Sponsors of the event, which is organized by the CDRA, include the Federal Highway Administration; the National Asphalt Pavement Association; the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association; Asphalt Shingle Grinding Service; Heritage Environmental; and Owens Corning.
Exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information about the forum, including how to register, visit www.shinglerecycling.org.
