Recovery Technology Solutions, LLC ("RTS" or the "Company") is a company created to commercialize a proprietary disruptive process technology for the recycling of asphalt shingles and the extraction and recovery of asphalt cement, fiberglass/felt, mineral aggregates and mineral fillers to be reused in the shingle manufacturing and asphalt pavement industry.
Asphalt shingles come in two basic types: fiberglass and organic. Organic shingles consist of an organic felt material, saturated with asphalt cement to make it waterproof. A top coating of adhesive asphalt is then applied and ceramic granules are embedded. Organic shingles contain around 40% more asphalt per square than their fiberglass counterpart.
