Pooled Fund Study Provides Deep Insights into Use of RAS Editor’s Note: Several state departments of transportation banded together to contribute funding for a pooled fund study on the use of recycled shingles in asphalt for the highway environment. The major research was performed by the Iowa State University Institute of Transportation, with chief authors R. Christopher Williams, Andrew Cascione, Jianhua Yu, Debra Haugen, Mihai Marasteanu, and Jim McGraw. Several years in development, the report was released last August and can be accessed at here. Below are excerpts from the report. Read the Full Story
CONEXPOCONAGG A Chance To See Entire Construction Industry The triennial Conexo-Con/Agg exhibition has become the place for C&D recyclers to gather. Not only because the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association co-located its Annual Meeting at the show, but also because so many of the more than 3000 exhibitors are relevant to the industry. It is a great event for comparison shopping of different manufacturers’ wares because all the iron is there on display. In order to provide the recycling and demolition industry a sneak preview on what will be shown, C&D World reached to a large segment of the ConExpo-Con/Agg exhibitor list and asked them to provide that information. Below is a sample of what attendees can expect to see at this year’s show. See you at the show! Read the Full Story

While this may be the perception, RAS has been used in pavements since the 1980s and 1990s. Minnesota is one state that has conducted numerous field trials to investigate how shingles will perform when put in asphalt mixtures. Read the Full Story
Recycling Concrete Deep in the Heart of Buffalo Location is always important for any business, including concrete recyclers. Easy access to a convenient location is a boon that means customers can drop off and pick up material with little hassle. But for a location such as Buffalo Recycled Aggregates LLC’s near downtown Buffalo, N.Y., the advantage is also environmental. By being so close in, trucks laden with either broken concrete or end product do not have far to go, reducing emissions and wear and tear on local roads, not to mention the economic benefits.
