This Workshop will address the use of recycled materials in 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.
Maybe more importantly there are many nontraditional waste or by-product materials that 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 Workshop aims to explain what works and why. The need to divert these materials from landfills or being dumped into the environment is of great importance to all of us.
This workshop is designed to meet the educational needs of the decision makers, engineers and road administrators considering the use of recycled materials on roadways. Topics will include the well established recycling techniques in use worldwide, their standard specifications and the selection process in determining the best approach for a given roadway. Additionally, the use of nontraditional recycled, post-consumer and industrial by-products will be covered.
- Understand the recycled materials, processes and techniques currently in use.
- Explore the use of recycled materials used in maintenance, rehabilitation and new construction.
- Enhance your techniques to divert waste from landfills into roadways to improve the quality of pavements.
