RSVP By April 9 for the April 11th SME D.C. Section Luncheon with presentation on “Product Driven Assessment of Alternative Aggregates”

SME D.C. Section April Meeting – Krumb Lecture


Product-Driven Assessment of Alternative Aggregates

The optimum method to successfully develop products from nontraditional aggregate sources is to identify and then exploit unique features. Unique and valuable features are often color, shape, specific gravity, reflectivity, crystalline texture, hardness, porosity, pH, chemical composition and fire resistance. These features allow nontraditional aggregates to expand markets not served well by traditional aggregate sources. New aggregate products from nontraditional sources expand market share without negatively competing with traditional rock aggregate. Some nontraditional aggregate products currently in the market are: slate chips, shell, ceramic chips, rubber chips, brick chips, red dog slag, mica, bottom ash, and iron and steel slag.
