This feature article in Professional Roofing magazine examines the sustainability of asphalt roofing materials. It includes a quote from Tarco's VP of Technology and Innovation.

Excerpt from article:
“According to Shaik Mohseen, vice president of technology and innovation for Tarco, Little Rock, Ark., the key raw material to make dry felt is old corrugated cardboard or recycled waste paper. Dry felt makes up about 50 percent of the raw material required for asphalt-saturated organic felt, another reason asphalt-based roof systems can be considered sustainable.”
