Liberty Tire Recycling's Doug Carlson, vice president of asphalt products, will be a speaker at the Sept. 18-21 American Public Works Association (APWA) International Public Works Congress & Exposition in Denver.

Entitled, “Cost Benefits, Durability Pave Way for Use of Rubberized Asphalt,” Carlson’s Sept. 19 presentation will discuss the use of rubberized asphalt as a means for public works decision makers to save money on road maintenance and to increase road durability.

The material is made from scrap tires; Liberty recycles more than 130 million of them each year.

“With municipalities across the country facing significantly decreased budgets and public works officials looking for ways to trim costs, rubberized asphalt offers an eco-friendly, cost-effective alternative to traditional paving materials,” says Carlson.

“Rubberized asphalt is proven to resist cracking and rutting, enhance traffic safety, reduce splash and spray in wet conditions, and reduce highway noise,” he reports.

“As a result of its increased durability, rubberized asphalt requires less construction and maintenance costs than traditional asphalt, which results in significant savings of both time and money for public works departments, local governments and municipalities,” Carlson points out.

The company is also manning a booth at the event.
