Everett Crews joined Ingevity in 1985 after graduating with his Ph.D. from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Over his 38-year career, Everett has led numerous research and development programs to create new emulsifier and additive products for maintenance, rehabilitation, and construction applications. In 2003, Everett organized and led the U.S. technical team which developed the Ingevity Evotherm® Warm-Mix Asphalt (WMA) technology. In recent years, he has spearheaded development of Evoflex® recycling additives for high-RAP asphalt mixtures in support of global pavement sustainability initiatives. Everett continues to lead innovation programs to expand use of sustainable construction applications like emulsion-based Cold Recycling, Full Depth Reclamation (FDR), and other applications, which meet the no-waste objectives of circular economies. Over the past decade his scope of work expanded to include overseeing life cycle assessment (LCA) and environmental product declarations (EPDs) for WMA, rejuvenator, and emulsifier technologies. His work is documented in numerous publications, presentations, and patents. Everett served as the volunteer president of the Association of Modified Asphalt Producers (AMAP) from 2017-2021. He continues to serve on the Asphalt Institute (AI) Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and has been active on the AI’s EPD Task Force for asphalt binders. Everett currently serves on AI’s Product Category Rules (PCR) committee for asphalt binders.
Everett started serving on AI’s TAC in 2011 and has continued each year since either as a regular member to TAC or as an Ex-Officio to TAC through his role on AI’s Affiliate Committee. He regularly provides TAC updates at the Affiliate Committee meetings.
Everett has served on numerous industry organization’s boards and committees including AEMA, ARRA, ISSA, AMAP, and AI. Notably, he served as president of AMAP from 2017-2021 and currently serves on AEMA’s Sustainability Committee and as the Environmental and Regulatory Issues Committee Chair.
Everett has published several papers in the Transportation Research Record and other scientific journals including, “Field Performance of Warm-mix asphalt at the National Center for Asphalt Technology Test Track.” He has over 25 patents in chemistry development for warm-mix asphalt, cold recycling, and asphalt emulsifier technologies.
Dr Everett Crews has had a career dedicated to technical leadership and is well-respected throughout the asphalt industry.
