The gathering place of the shingle recycling industry is the Shingle Recycling Forum, the eighth edition of the event is Oct. 17-18, 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The program for the forum is completed, and includes sessions on an overview of the industry, current recycled asphalt shingle (RAS) mix designs for asphalt, how to work with a state DOT to use RAS in the highway environment, and alternative markets for RAS.
The 8th Shingle Recycling Forum is organized by the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association, and co-sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and the National Asphalt Pavement Association, among others. The 2017 event will feature a tour of a local shingle recycling facility and another site. The exhibit hall at the forum will showcase vendors providing the latest services for the shingle recycling industry.
Thanks to a grant from the FHWA, several state and local highway officials will be in attendance to learn more about using shingles in the highway environment.
