technology, you can produce a high-quality sand, in a consistent availability, with
a regular specification and with added
value, all while improving sustainability
across the entire value chain.

Operators Need to Know

lessons learned, we will discuss how the
rules apply to public-private partnerships
(P3s) and other future infrastructure
projects. Policy changes already been
initiated by President Trump and the
115th Congress also will be discussed.

materials may require only rinsing, others require scrubbing to remove clay and
other deleterious materials. Attend this
session to gain a comprehensive overview of topics including aggregate washing techniques, maintenance routines,
classifying tanks, screws versus screens,
troubleshooting common washing problems and the consequences of wrongsized equipment.

Maximizing Conveyor Belt
Performance: Industry Standards
vs. Real World Applications

Joseph Mion, Golder Associates
The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is the
primary federal legislation addressing
conservation of threatened and endangered plant and animal species and their
habitats. Federal agencies are required to
consider the ESA in actions they authorize through permits and/or funding,
which also requires consultation with the
US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and
the National Marine Fisheries Service
(NMFS). Aggregates producers typically
must address ESA-related issues when
seeking permits for operations, expansion
of existing facilities, and development
of new facilities, and the ESA element
is often one of the greatest sources of
uncertainty for aggregates producers in
permitting efforts. The FWS and NMFS
have recently proposed changes to the
ESA addressing how species and habitats
are listed, how protections are extended
to listing classifications, and the interagency consultation process. This session
will discuss the ESA in terms of real-world
challenges to aggregates producers and
approaches for addressing them. Hear
about proposed changes to the ESA and
their implications and potential benefits
for the industry.

Buy America and Hire America
on Federally - Funded
Construction Projects

Brian Waagner, Husch Blackwell
With everything changing in Washington,
D.C., and the new "America First" emphasis, it's important to understand the latest information on the Buy American
Act, Buy American requirements for road
construction and other publicly-funded
infrastructure projects, and the impact of
the Trade Agreements Act. In addition to

The aggregates industry is experiencing
a growing difficulty in attracting the
next generation of skilled and unskilled
workers into our labor force. This roundtable discussion will discuss ideas and
methods to attract the younger worker to
the aggregates industry. Representatives
with hiring and recruiting experience
and authority from large and small
aggregates companies will share lessons
learned and best practices they've discovered, and attendees will be encouraged to share their ideas and experiences
regarding this issue.

Drones: Realizing Real Value While
Insuring Accuracy & Consistency

Michael Singer, DroneView Technologies
Over the past several years, drones have
experienced broad interest and adoption in the aggregates and mining industries for facilitating stockpile volume
measurements, topography mapping,
equipment inspection and more. Hear
from a leading drone service company
with years of experience collecting, processing and extracting real value out of
drone derived data as they share insights
and perspectives on what works, what
doesn't and how to ensure accuracy,
consistency and safety while scaling a
drone program.

Washing & Classifying 101

John Bennington, Superior Industries
As quarries progress into their reserves,
operations are processing material with
a higher level of clay and silt. While some

There's a big difference between seeing
an issue with conveyor performance and
truly understanding the issue. Part of
gaining that understanding is knowing
the specifications of conveyor belt construction, operational forces, transition
distances, load zone requirements, and
tracking cause and effect. And when
you understand and implement industry standards on belt selection, take-up
requirements and structural standards,
you can maximize performance, reduce
the number of trips to the conveyor and
avoid costly and potentially hazardous
repairs. This interactive class demonstrates how the best of standards are
often violated, and how to avoid doing so
in order to more accurately identify and
rectify belt performance issues.

Hybrid Power Solutions for Mobile
(Track) Plants

Stephen Whyte, KPI-JCI and
Astec Mobile Screens
This course will discuss the benefits that
utilizing hybrid power sources can provide, specifically as they relate to mobile
crushing and screening plants. Several
topics of discussion will be environmental factors - like noise levels and engine
emissions - as well as operating costs
and performance in harsh environments.
