EAPA Position Paper “Warm Mix Asphalt” available

By | News

The EAPA Position Paper “The use of Warm Mix Asphalt” is available on the EAPA website. The position paper outlines technologies for producing Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) at temperatures between 100 and 140°C, while still maintaining the properties and performance of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA), which is produced at higher temperatures of 140 to 180°C.

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.

Today, at the "Sharing Best Practice 2022" Event, organised by the Asphalt Industry Alliance (@AIA_Asphalt), I gave my first presentation on the topic of #Resilience, a concept that I am sure will provide a lot more to talk about in the coming years.

Meet another #Asphalt_Hero, Loretta Venturini, a Scientific and Strategic Development Director in an International company that has been working for more than 50 years in the field of additives for #asphalt #pavements. 🛣️
