Room on September 30th, 2013.

The ASHRAE University of Windsor Student Branch visited the Windsor Rubber Processing Plant to look at the very intriguing world of tire recycling. The group was small but they took full advantage of the opportunity top provide the small start-up recycling firm with ideas on research benefits with the University of Windsor.

“The tour provided a valuable insight to the simple yet complex operation of tire recycling. The visit, hosted by Joe Fontana, was very informative and provided a foundation to a possible future research partnership."

University of Windsor Student Chapter President
