UPCOMING WEBINARS

The Low Hanging Fruit: Readily Available Technologies and Practices to Reduce GHG Emissions

Date: Thursday, August 18, 2022

Time:  2:00 pm to 3:30 pm EDT

Speakers: Shane Buchanan, Asphalt Performance Manager, CRH Americas Materials Inc.; and Brett Williams, Director, Engineering & Technical Support, NAPA

Description:  The previous webinar in NAPA’s Road to Zero series focused on ways to quantify GHG emissions. But with an ambitious goal of achieving net zero GHG emissions by 2050, lots of folks in the asphalt pavement community want to know what they can do now to reduce GHG emissions. The good news is that there are numerous opportunities to optimize asphalt pavement materials, mix production practices, paving operations, and pavement design. This webinar will explore the readily available technologies and practices that can be used to reduce GHG emissions.


Attendees will:

  1. Learn about ways to reduce emissions and costs during asphalt mix production.
  2. Understand how construction practices during asphalt paving operations can affect GHG emissions throughout the pavement life cycle.
  3. Learn how to reduce emissions by optimizing mix design and material selection practices.

PDHs: Professional engineers (PEs) who register and attend the entire webinar as an individual will be awarded up to 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). APA/NAPA’s webinar program awards PDH credits only to the registered individual, and not to other members of a group that view the webinar together. To be eligible for the credits, individuals must remain signed in for the entire webinar, including for any question and answer session following the presentations.

APA/NAPA will report credits earned to the Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP). Complaints about registered providers may be sent to RCEP, 1015 15th Street, NW, 8th Floor, Washington, DC 20005.

Cold Recycling and Full Depth Reclamation: From Materials to Structural Design

Date: Wednesday, September 7, 2022

Time:  2:00 pm to 3:30 pm EDT

Speakers: Dr. Benjamin F. Bowers, PE, Assistant Professor, Graduate Coordinator: Pavements and Materials, Auburn University, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering

Description: Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR), Cold In-place Recycling (CIR), and Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) have become popular topics amongst agencies and industry as cost effective, environmentally conscious ways to rehabilitate or reconstruct asphalt pavements. Have you wondered what these techniques are and the opportunity they afford the asphalt industry and road owners? This webinar will introduce these techniques, shed light on production and application processes, provide a case study, and showcase how to use PAVEXpress and PerRoad for design.


Attendees will be able to :

  1. Understand the basics of Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR), Cold In-place Recycling (CIR), and Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) techniques.
  2. Examine a case study on the use of CCPR and FDR at the NCAT Test Track.
  3. Understand how to utilize PAVEXpress and PerRoad for CCPR, CIR, and FDR designs.

Asphalt Production & Construction

Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Time:  2:00 pm to 3:30 pm EDT

Speakers: Steve McReynolds, Director of Operations, Asphalt Testing Solutions & Engineering and TJ Young, Production Manager, Duval Asphalt

Description: Civil and geotechnical engineers often specify asphalt for projects but don’t always get the opportunity to learn about production and construction of the product. This webinar will take attendees behind the scenes using drone video to explore the asphalt production process leading up to delivery on-site. Furthering this educational opportunity, engineers will learn about the construction process by watching asphalt placement and hearing tips to specify and design high-quality jobs presented by experienced asphalt experts.


Attendees will be able to :

  1. How asphalt is produced
  2. How asphalt is constructed
  3. Ways to improve the end product through design considerations

PDHs: Professional engineers (PEs) who register and attend the entire webinar as an individual will be awarded up to 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). APA/NAPA’s webinar program awards PDH credits only to the registered individual, and not to other members of a group that view the webinar together.

Best Practices for Design of Low Volume Asphalt Parking Lots and Commercial Applications

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Time:  2:00 pm to 3:30 pm EDT

Speakers: Mike Skinner, P.E. Director of Pavement Engineering, Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association

Description: Parking lot pavements have significant differences than traditional roadway pavements. Material types, mix design, and construction practices will be discussed to improve service life and reduce maintenance costs. Attendees will be equipped with best practices for designing asphalt parking lots.


Attendees will be able to :

  1. Understand the value and benefits of asphalt parking lots.
  2. Determining key factors affecting service life of a parking lot pavement.
  3. Incorporate best practices for designing an asphalt pavement parking lot.
