Recycled materials hold the key to more eco-friendly asphalt production

Pavements are traditionally constructed using hot-mix asphalt, a mix of bitumen and virgin aggregates produced at high temperatures. This requires large amounts of natural resources and energy and releases a large quantity of waste. However, technologies exist to create warm-mix asphalt -- a substance produced, transported and compacted at lower temperatures than traditional hot-mix asphalts, resulting in a lower environmental impact and carbon footprint. This study explores the 'eco-profiles' of asphalt technologies used to construct urban pavements, assessing various scenarios based on their environmental impact and energy requirements across the entire pavement life cycle.
