    Please make plans to attend the Georgia Section of SME meeting on February 1, 2018 in Milledgeville at Georgia College.  We will have our Georgia Section Krumb Lecturer Mr. Steven J. Stokowski, P.G. giving his presentation of  "Product-Driven Assessment of Alternative Aggregates".  Come out and support our section next Thursday night with a speaker who was selected as outstanding among his peers at the SME Meeting last spring.

    Topic: "Product-Driven Assessment of Alternative Aggregates"

    The optimum method to successfully develop products from non-traditional aggregate sources is to identify and then exploit unique features. Unique and valuable features are often: color, shape, specific gravity, reflectivity, crystalline texture, hardness, porosity, pH, chemical composition, and fire resistance. These features allow non-traditional aggregates to expand markets not served well by traditional aggregate sources. New aggregate products from non-traditional sources expand market share without negatively competing with traditional rock aggregate. Some non-traditional aggregate products currently in the market are: slate chips, shell, ceramic chips, rubber chips, brick chips, red dog slag, mica, bottom ash, and iron & steel slag.
