Waste asphalt shingles are also part of what’s known as Construction and Demolition Waste (“C&D”) which occupies substantial landfill space and contributes to a shortage that necessitates transporting waste to larger, more distant disposal sites, increasing our carbon footprint.


The Waste Asphalt
Shingle Problem

Currently, there are no sustainably viable solutions for the disposal of waste asphalt shingles.


According to a 2018 report by the EPA, 15M tons are dumped into landfills annually, the equivalent to 22M barrels of oil (“bbls”).


An estimated 700 million tons of asphalt shingles have been dumped into landfills since 1960.


Of North American homes have asphalt shingle roofing. An average house generates 2-3 tons of tear-off waste shingles.

300 Years

Asphalt shingles can take anywhere from 300 to 500 years to decompose, leaching harmful toxins into top soil & surface water as the shingle elements break down.


Fostering A Greener Future

Our integrated approach has the potential to repurpose and upcycle millions of tons of asphalt shingle waste, diverting them from landfills, contributing to better waste management and promoting resource efficiency. It also makes economic sense as it reduces disposal costs and the need for new raw materials, while also creating valuable products from waste, conserving natural resources, and reducing environmental impact.

Recycling Just 1 Ton
of Shingles Yields....

Recycled products typically demand less energy and exert a lower environmental impact compared to the extraction and processing of virgin materials. By blending recycled liquid asphalt from waste shingles into sustainable fuels, we reduce the need for new oil. In addition, waste asphalt shingles are a relatively non-depleting resource compared to traditional oil wells, and this could provide a level of energy security.

This reduction in emissions and potential energy security signifies a tangible step towards achieving climate goals and aligns with the global push towards decarbonization and energy transition efforts, fostering a greener future for generations to come.
