Research Report 309 Trials of the use of recycled hot mix and ground tyre rubber in hot mix asphalt

Published: | Category: Environmental impacts of land transport , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This research, carried out in 2003–2004, aimed to facilitate the recycling of asphalt mix, recycled asphalt pavement (RAP), and crumb rubber (CR) from waste tyres into New Zealand roads. The objectives were to allow for the revision of the appropriate specifications to encourage recycling of these materials and to use field trials to prove the performance of recycled and crumb rubber modified mixes in practice.
