Sustainability is Napa conference theme

Sustainability of asphalt pavements is creating a competitive edge for pavement contractors and is the theme of the 2015 Asphalt Sustainability Conference, October 13-14 in Portland, Oregan.

The conference is organized by the National Asphalt Pavement Association in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration.

Washington State Department of Transportation secretary Lynn Peterson, creator of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Sustainability Plan, is the keynote speaker.

National Asphalt Pavement Association chairman Michael Cote of the Lane Construction Corp. will open the conference with his perspective on sustainable transportation and what it means for sustainable development.

The conference’s three half-day sessions include educational sessions for contractors, department of transportation and public works personnel, construction managers, environmental managers, engineers, designers, specifiers, and decision-makers in the road construction sector.

Speakers at the conference include Gina Ahlstrom, Federal Highway Administration; Jeralee Anderson, Greenroads; Joe Mahoney and Stephen Muench, University of Washington; Amlan Mukherjee, Michigan Technological University; and Richard Willis, National Center for Asphalt Technology.

Topics on the conference agenda include a discussion of Federal Highway Administration’s Sustainable Pavements Program and the opportunities it creates, how to build a green construction business, sustainability innovations at asphalt plants, lessons learned about reclaimed asphalt pavement mixtures from the recent industry tour of Japan, the use of porous asphalt at the Port of Portland, long-life asphalt pavements, understanding life-cycle assessment and environmental product declarations, and the use phase of sustainable pavements.
