REcycling professionals are invited to attend the upcoming Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) conference to be held October 20-22nd at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff.
There are a number of interesting topics on this year’s agenda that the organizers believe will likely be of interest to professionals involved in recycling waste resources. Specifically, this includes the session to be held on Wednesday, Oct 20th entitled: "The Role of Industry in an Era of Product Stewardship" and four sessions to be held on Thursday, October 21st entitled: "Industry’s Role in Developing Sustainable Markets for Ground Rubber"; "The Role of Government in the Development of Sustainable Markets for Recyclable Products"; "Tire Stockpile Research — Best Practices, Risks and West Nile Virus" and "The Future of Molded and Extruded Rubber Recycling."
For those recycling officials interested in the asphalt rubber paving program in Alberta, the Friday, October 22nd morning session entitled "Rubberized Asphalt Use in Cold Climates" will be particularly useful. Panel experts such as George Way with the U.S. Rubber Pavement Association and Al Schulz, P.Eng. representing ARMA will discuss the challenges and opportunities of using rubber modified asphalt in cold climates.
As well the session entitled “Civil Engineering Applications in Cold Climates” also to be held on the Friday morning, will likely be particularly informative for landfill officials with responsibilities involving lechate collection.
Full conference registration for non-members is $595 and includes all sessions, materials, refreshment breaks, two continental breakfasts, two wine and cheese receptions, Thursday lunch and a special theme dinner on Thursday evening.
