Saint-Gobain acquires asphalt shingle recycling technology

Saint-Gobain North America, through its subsidiary CertainTeed Roofing, has acquired the rights to proprietary technology from recycling partner Asphaltica. This will allow CertainTeed to recycle asphalt shingle waste, diverting it from landfills and “furthering the company’s commitment to creating a circular economy in its production of roofing shingles,” the company said in a release.

“By taking an innovative approach and embracing new technologies, Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed Roofing are making strides to maximize our positive impact while minimizing our environmental imprint,” said Carmen Bodden, VP of CertainTeed Roofing.
