Did you know that asphalt is one of the greenest materials around? Asphalt pavement and reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) DO NOT leach petroleum into the earth. Asphalt has a small carbon footprint. And asphalt’s smooth surface helps save fuel.
Did you also know that asphalt is one of the most recycled products in the country? In fact, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) promotes the use of recycled asphalt in the construction of roadways to help reduce waste, preserve the environment, and also reduce construction costs. Because of this, asphalt recycling is a common practice within the asphalt industry.
- Inclusion of removed/recycled asphalt chunks into a new batch of hot mix asphalt.
- Milling an asphalt surface and recycling it immediately for an overlay.
“Asphalt is a 100% recyclable material,” said Dr. Zhanping You, P.E., Ph.D., professor of transportation engineering and materials at Michigan Technological University. “Asphalt is the most recycled material in the United States.”
Using 100% recycled asphalt for asphalt paving and repairs is a cost effective solution for homeowners, property managers, and business owners.
