  • Asphalt supply: What can we expect down the line?
  • Aggregate issues: Ensuring a steady supply of the materials needed for
    today’s high-performance mixes;
  • DOT and FHWA perspectives on recycling;
  • Plant processing strategies to help boost the use of RAP;
  • Saving energy through plant efficiency;
  • Reducing transportation costs;
  • Reducing the cost of drying aggregates;
  • Mix design for HMA recycling;
  • Selecting the most cost-effective mix for the project;
  • Polymers in recycling;
  • Warm-mix asphalt and recycling;
  • Rubblization and perpetual pavements; and
  • The new design guide for high RAP content HMA mixes.
