BETHESDA, Md. - The EPDM Roofing Association (ERA), as part of its ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility, has announced the creation of a new Affiliate Member category, whose members will form the ERA Recycling Council.

In conjunction with this announcement, ERA has announced that Nationwide Foam Inc. (NFI), of Framingham, Mass., has become the first affiliate member. Nationwide Foam, North America’s largest foam insulation board recycler, collects and hauls used Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), Polyisocyanurate (ISO), and Composite (COMP) foam board directly from tear-off roofing jobsites, in addition to its collection and transportation of EPDM.

The Affiliate Member category is open to any company, corporation or other form of enterprise which is not eligible for Regular or Associate Membership but is engaged in any aspect of the business of recycling EPDM or other single-ply roof membranes. These companies will work with ERA to continue ERA’s efforts to re-use and recycle EPDM. Membership requires the approval of the ERA Board of Directors.
