David R. Smith


Innovative Technologies Forum

Invited companies presented transformative technologies that save time and money while increasing productivity in the production plant or on the job site. Presenters included Permaloc, Solidia Technologies and iActEx. Permaloc presented research, practice and cost savings with edge restraints in PICP construction using geogrids that eliminate edge spikes. Solidia Technologies explained accelerated product curing with carbon dioxide sequestration plus a new low-carbon emissions cement. iActEx provided a live demonstration of a paver production plant using their software to identify and address formerly unseen downtime of production line components and processes. To qualify for presenting at the forum, companies submitted an application and provided a presentation in advance reviewed by ICPI committee members for relevance and educational content without commercial touting.
