RMA sponsors conference on ground rubber recycling

The Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA), Asphalt Rubber Technology Services (ARTS) at Clemson University and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) will sponsor “Scrap to Profit” – Symposium on Recycled Rubber in Plastics and Rubber Products," April 16–17 at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina.

“The use of ground rubber in molded and extruded rubber and plastic products is one of the largest markets for ground rubber,” stated RMA’s senior technical director Michael Blumenthal.

The “Scrap to Profit” conference will have presentations on four major issues affecting this use of ground rubber, including:

  • Ground rubber as a raw material.
  • What is it, and how is it made?
  • What are key quality parameters?
  • What are the costs of these materials versus virgin raw materials?
  • What is the supply situation?
  • How to get started
