by Emily Blackburn

Owens Corning, the Toledo, Ohio-based manufacturer of insulation, roofing and fiberglass, has activated a shingle recycling pilot factory here, the company announced.

The facility, established in partnership with ASR Systems, CRS Reprocessing Services and Indiana Shingle Recycling, represents the official launch of an Owens Corning initiative to reclaim asphalt shingle components and repurpose those raw materials into new shingles, company officials said.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and plant tour to market the shingle-recycling initiative was conducted at the pilot site, on the grounds of Indiana Shingle Recycling in Indianapolis, corporate officials said.

“Owens Corning is focused on sustainability and making the world a better place. We want to help distributors and contractors advance sustainability through high-performing, recycled shingles that protect homeowners’ most valuable asset,” said Gunner Smith, Owens Corning Roofing president.

Owens Corning recently announced that it intends to recycle two million tons of shingles per year in the U.S. by 2030.
