ASPHALT PAVEMENT RECYCLING TECHNOLOGIES
The asphalt paving industry today faces many challenges, including aging infrastructure, reduced agency funding, rising costs and the need for improved environmental stewardship and sustainability. Road Science offers innovative and cost-effective asphalt pavement recycling technology solutions to build better-performing, longer-lasting, environmentally responsible and safer roads.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) policy on asphalt pavement recycling states, “Recycling of pavements can offer engineering, economic and environmental benefits. Recycled materials should get first consideration in materials selection.” Recycling techniques replace old and distressed pavements with new smoother and safer roads that are durable and crack-free. These techniques are economical since they reuse the asphalt and aggregate in the old road to build the new road. Recycling also reduces hauling costs, and wear and tear on adjacent roads since the road is built in-place.
Road Science’s hot and cold asphalt pavement recycling technologies are engineered to deliver the highest and most reliable performance. Our recycling technologies are different from conventional recycling techniques because they integrate exclusive emulsifier chemistry and an engineered design process to meet performance-related specifications. These technologies reduce costs by at least 25% compared to conventional construction techniques and provide environmentally friendly options for rehabilitating roads with minor to major distresses.
