Opportunities - Sustainable Plant Operations

Date: Thursday, October 6, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Ron Sines, P.E., VP, Asphalt Performance, Oldcastle Materials

Sustainability is about more than just ecological practices; it's about economic and social practices, too. Together, these three areas are the triple bottom line — the three pillars of sustainability. As best practices merge with sustainability, which is the mission of a growing number of agencies and road owners, it is important to make continuous improvements. The NAPA Diamond Achievement Sustainable Commendation builds on the continuous improvement NAPA members strive for and provides a blueprint for today's sustainable practices for asphalt plant operations.

In this session you will learn: 

  • How to reduce costs through more sustainable operations.
  • Why environmental stewardship makes good business sense.

A Practical Approach to Managing Density 
Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2:00–3:00 p.m. EDT 
Speaker: Todd Mansell, Training Consultant, Caterpillar Paving Products Inc. 

Meeting and exceeding density specifications is critical to success on today's paving jobs. However, managing the rolling and compaction operation continues to be the most misunderstood aspect of the paving operation. Contractors often "chase density" without understanding and fixing the root cause(s) of why density is not being consistently achieved. It doesn't have to work this way.

In this session you will learn: 

  • How to establish and maintain an effective rolling pattern.
  • Step-by-step ways to pinpoint the root cause(s) of not getting density on a job.
  • How to practically manage the compaction operation in the face of unplanned events such as plant breakdowns, equipment breakdowns and trucking problems.

Tools — FHWA Sustainable Pavements Program LCA Framework

Date: Thursday, October 20, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT 
Speaker: Gina Ahlstrom, Senior Pavement Engineer, Federal Highway Administration Assets Management, Pavements and Construction  The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) along with the U.S. Department of Transportation are committed to incorporating sustainability practices throughout the pavement life-cycle of a roadway. Awareness of the importance of environmental protection, and the possible impacts associated with the production, use, and retirement of products, has generated considerable interest in the use of assessment methods to better understand and address those impacts. FHWA's Sustainable Pavements Program was created to reach these objectives through a variety of activities, including working groups with stakeholders from all aspects of a roadway pavement life-cycle. NAPA is partnering with FHWA to provide this webinar on the FHWA Sustainable Pavements Program. The program will be outlined and its latest published resource on assessment methods for environmental performance will be explained.   In this session you will learn:

  • FHWA's ongoing Sustainable Pavements Program education efforts
  • Assessment methods for environmental performance
  • Future opportunities FHWA foresees that encourage greater sustainability practices
