||Hot-In-Place Asphalt Recycling
The budget crunch is getting louder. Delaying, modifying or canceling road work is one way to go. But recycling your current road surface may be a smarter way to go!
This program explains how your municipality can save 30% or more on its resurfacing budget with environmentally-friendly Hot-in-Place Recycling
You will learn how Hot-in-Place Recycling replaces the conventional “mill & overlay” approach while significantly reducing the carbon footprint
Come see what is involved and whether these methods are a viable option for your agency.
After viewing this program, participants will be better able to:
• Explain the process and appropriate applications for Heater Scarification Hot-in-Place Recycling
• Describe the process and appropriate applications for Re-HEAT Hot-in-Place Recycling
• Determine how both processes provide a cost advantage and environmental benefit versus convention pavement resurfacing using the “Mill & Overlay” approach
This program has been approved for .2 CEUs or 2 PDHs. The form to request these credits is available upon completion of the class evaluation. Please note there is a $5 fee per individual requesting CEUs.
