Company Summary

RSTI has developed the Rotary Thermal Recycler™ (RTR) system, the only known solution for transforming 100% RAP into a pavable product. RAP is a byproduct of asphalt repair and an attractive sustitute that is 1/3 the cost of virgin materials. To date the value in RAP has been difficult to realize as nothing exists that allows more than 50% recycling. It is est. by the USDOT that over 68MM tons of RAP goes unused or underutilized each year.
