Our Clean Tech

Eco-Friendly Technology

Sky Quarry has developed a clean tech, environmentally safe, closed-loop process that can recycle AND reuse asphalt shingle waste.

The innovation lies in our proprietary solvent, which, when introduced to the shingle waste material, transforms it into a fluid slurry by dissolving the asphalt bitumen. As the bitumen and solution rise, the solids sink. The bitumen and solvent are then separated, with the solvent being stored for reuse and the purified bitumen pumped into storage tanks for transportation to our refinery. The remaining solids undergo thorough cleaning and drying before being prepared for sale.

Advantages of Our Technology


Low boiling-point mixture means extraction can take place at mild temperatures, with no vacuum or pressure, making it energy efficient.

Closed Loop System

Recovers up to 99% of hydrocarbons, recycles up to 99% of the solvent it uses, and extracts up to 99% of the bitumen.

Cleaner method

Our process consumes very little of our valuable water resources and is cleaner than the alternative hot water-based extraction technology.

Continuous Flow

Our fluidized, bed-vortex mixing tank facilitates continuous mixing, ensuring a seamless flow and optimizing the mixture for higher volumes and enhanced efficiency.


Every ton of waste asphalt shingle (WAS) recycled at our facility is expected to produce 50% fewer CO2 emissions than traditional methods.

How The
Process Works

What Makes
Up An Asphalt

Every Ton of Recovered Asphalt Shingles Is Expected To Be Worth About $295, And Can Be Sold On The National Infrastructure Products Market.

Estimated Product value per ton of WAS:

*Asphalt shingles contain anywhere between 15-35% of a liquid asphalt binder called “bitumen,” which is a key ingredient of hot-mix asphalt used in road construction.

*WTI Crude oil price per barrel is $82.13
