Conference Time

Jan 31, 2012

The Evotherm team will be out and about again this week. Dean Frailey, Lance Brooks, and I are heading to the SCAPA annual meeting up the road in Columbia, SC, while David Newton will be presenting on porous pavement at the Paiky Winter Training School in Louisville, KY.

"We've got to double down on warm mix" was my favorite quote at the NAPA annual conference last week. There was even discussion in the warm mix task force meeting about when we will stop using HMA as a term and move to asphalt mix. I like the way they're thinking! NAPA released the third edition of Warm Mix Asphalt Best Practices and it should be available at their online store soon. Dr. Jon Epps is looking for another field project or two for NCHRP 09-49 so please contact him if you can help. AsphaltPro tweeted from the RAP and RAS session where John Bartosek with Payne and Dolan gave manufacturing tips for using up to 50% RAP. Ramming Paving shared their experience in central Texas, event highlighting one of their Evotherm jobs.
