Research report 404 Environmental and financial costs and benefits of warm asphalts

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

Warm asphalts are asphalts produced at significantly lower temperatures than the C that is typical of a hot mix plant. Depending on the approximately 160 technology used, laying and compaction may also be possible at significantly reduced temperatures. The report gives a summary of current warm asphalt technologies, followed by details of costs, temperature reductions and energy savings. A comparison is made of potential environmental costs and benefits of hot mix manufacture and the different warm mix methodologies.
