On Thursday 6 June 2019 EAPA organised the EAPA Symposium 2019 at La Maison des Travaux Publics in Paris (France). Around 100 participants, mainly from Industry and Public Road Administrations attended the event, where they had a great opportunity to interact with the speakers and network with other stakeholders of asphalt industry.
The European Asphalt Pavement Association (EAPA) has awarded Juan José Potti, President of ASEFMA (Asociatión Espanola de Fabricantes de Mezclas Asfálticas), the Spanish Asphalt Producers Association, with the “EAPA Asphalt Advocate of the Year” award during its General Council Assembly in Berlin on 13 June 2018. With this award EAPA honours a member that has demonstrated own initiatives regarding a better asphalt road marketing and the communication of important industry’s topics. The Asphalt Advocate must have supported the “Asphalt Advantages” campaign EAPA initiated together with Eurobitume, the European Association of Bitumen Producers. This award was provided for the second time after 2017.
The primary objective of the European Asphalt Pavement Association is to build a sound evidence base for promoting the economic, technical, and societal benefits of asphalt paving in road construction and maintenance. Further, to create the future for an innovative and modern asphalt industry in Europe that cares for health and safety as well as for protection of the environment and sustainability.
European Asphalt Pavement Association (EAPA) is the voice of the Asphalt Paving Industry in Europe and works to ensure that the use of asphalt, as the optimum choice for the construction and maintenance of the vital European road infrastructure, is fully appreciated, promoted, and implemented.
Learn all about Asphalt
Asphalt plays an important role in our daily activities. When we travel to work or school, or when we buy goods in a shop or via internet, asphalt roads are being used.
There is more knowledge and science involved in this material than most people realise. This allows producing many different types of asphalt, each having specific characteristics. Some are designed to be porous and very silent, others to be impermeable, etc. In most cases, asphalt surfaces are grey or black although it is also possible to find them yellow or red.
