National Asphalt Pavement Association Sustainability Conference set for October

The National Asphalt Pavement Association’s Asphalt Sustainability Conference, scheduled for October 13-14 in Portland, Oregon, will provide discussions on both applications and effective measurements for sustainability of asphalt.

Measuring the impacts of sustainability in asphalt pavements is where the true future of sustainable paving lies with contractors. “The upcoming challenges for contractors, going forward,” Dr. Heather Dylla, director of sustainable engineering for NAPA has said, “is quantification.”

“To encourage networking, audience participation and open discussions, the conference will be organized in a discussion format,” NAPA said in its education session overview. “Each session will begin with a group of industry speakers addressing common issues built on three over-arching themes: What is Sustainability and Why?; Sustainability in Practice in the Asphalt Industry; and Measuring the Sustainability of Asphalt.

After the presentations, time will be alotted for roundtable discussion where experiences can be shared and questions developed. After these roundtables, there will be an open forum and panel discussion where speakers and fellow attendees will answer each groups’ questions.”
