Did you know that the roof over your head might someday be the road under your wheels?
Recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) are often used in pavement asphalt, which is both environmentally and economically friendly.
Asphalt and modern life go hand-in-hand, but without proper planning and implementation, asphalt can cause negative consequences for the environment and people. That’s why Wolf Paving cares about green infrastructure.
A good definition comes from The Conservation Fund: “Green infrastructure is strategically planned and managed networks of natural lands, working landscapes and other open spaces that conserve ecosystem values and functions and provide associated benefits to human populations.”
The asphalt industry is full of events that bring in new perspectives and help expand the knowledge base of those in the asphalt paving industry. The World of Asphalt Show and Conference 2012, March 13-15, in Charlotte, North Carolina, provides over 40 educational sessions and many opportunities to talk to industry experts and view over 300 exhibitors. Here’s a brief overview of what the conference has to offer.
