The Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA) has announced the 9th Shingle Recycling Forum has been scheduled for Oct. 5-6 at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel.
CDRA says the event is designed to bring together state Department of Transportation (DOT) officials, recyclers, asphalt plant operators, road pavers and other interested parties “for impactful networking and cutting-edge presentations from industry experts.”
The Maryland-based Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association and Arkansas-based Paragon Resource Management are sponsors of the event. Additional exhibitors and sponsors are being sought by CDRA, the group adds.
A schedule for the October event indicates a facility tour will be offered to attendees. Topics to be covered include: the state of recycled shingle use in pavements; guidance from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on the use of recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) in highways; working with state DOTs to Use shingles in the highway environment; and panel discussions offering contractor perspectives and a review of other process shingle end markets.More information on the event, including how to register, can be found here.
