KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy Creates Energy, LLC ("ECE"), a Missouri-based technology enabler, specializing in empowering partner companies with industrial technology solutions, was spotlighted earlier this year in a major transportation trade publication, Better Roads. The respected trade magazine featured ECE's patented technology for recycling asphalt shingles for use in road surfaces.

In a wide ranging article, the magazine cited some of the challenges in producing a consistent, high-quality recycled asphalt shingle (RAS) road surface product. The use of ECE technology by Ideker Construction Company, based in St. Joseph, Missouri, and the outstanding results they saw as a result were highlighted in the piece. As mentioned in the article, ECE's patented shingle shredder has a simple yet robust design capable of reducing particle size, eliminating moisture and pneumatically conveying output materials. 

Pat Perry, ECE's CEO, praised the article, "It's encouraging to see companies like Ideker using our technology to provide Departments of Transportation with a fundamentally better product," he said.  "ECE innovations have helped solve a vital problem – how to unlock more asphalt oil from shingles by efficiently creating a smaller, dryer particle – allowing for a better, more consistent and durable end-use product. By improving feedstock this way, early in the value stream, our technology unlocks considerable added value downstream."
