I-20.021 Fullerton Aggregate processes raw shale into lightweight aggregate material. This process requires heat treating shale and injecting it with fly ash as it passes through rotating kilns. The shale both expands and hardens in the process, and is ideally suited to road construction. Fullerton uses the FIFO process costing method to account for production. The following information is available for a recent period: Beginning work in process on September 1 consisted of 75,000 tons that were 80% complete with respect to raw materials and 50% complete with respect to conversion costs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
