Build Greener Roads
This Seminar is designed to meet the educational needs of decision makers, engineers and road administrators considering the use of recycled materials on roadways.
The value of roadways is well known, often one of the most significant investments an agency owns. Recycling of roadway materials should always be considered when maintaining, rehabilitating or building new roadways. There are numerous techniques and standards that are well established, and each approach should be considered before selecting the most appropriate for a specific project.
Many nontraditional waste or by-product materials have found their way into use in roadways. Recycled Tire Rubber has a well-established role in asphalt paving. Plastic, Crushed Portland Cement Concrete, Contaminated Soils, Fly-Ash, Slag, Paper and many other Industrial by-products and Post Consumer materials have found practical uses in paving. This Seminar aims to explain what works and why.
