According to industry estimates, about 12 million tons of asphalt roof shingles in the U.S. wind up in landfills each year. Recycling asphalt shingles is only partially effective because it is hard to separate the non-recyclable materials (like wood and nails) during the recycling process.

At this event, AURI, the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSR&PC), and Roof Maxx of Grand Rapids MN, will discuss the environmental advantages of using a soy methyl ester emulsion (SMEE) on roof shingles. The product has been shown to be effective in extending the life of shingles and keeping them out of landfills. They will also conduct a demonstration of the SMEE application and provide information on roofing rejuvenates on commercial products and opportunities for increased utilization of soy rejuvenates in Minnesota.
