Dear asphalt friends,

In this Newsletter we would like to provide you with the latest information of EAPA and the Asphalt Industry.

EAPA Workshop on the Use of Rejuvenators in Asphalt Mixtures
After the publication in August 2018 of the “EAPA Recommendations for the Use of Rejuvenators in Hot and Warm Asphalt Production”, great feedback was received rising the interest of different stakeholders of Asphalt Sector. With the aim of maximising the dissemination and outreach of EAPA’s work, the Association organised the 1st EAPA Workshop on the use of rejuvenators in asphalt mixtures, which was held on 10-11 September 2019 in Padova, Italy.
After the presentation of the EAPA Paper, the event was divided into two technical sessions, one related to Research and Innovation and another focused in sharing practical experiences from different European countries. A total of 70 experts from Industry, Academia and Road Authorities participated in interesting discussions and engaged in a final work-in-groups session, providing advice to further develop EAPA activities in the coming years.
All the presentations, a summary and the pictures of the Workshop are available at the EAPA website.

The Global Asphalt Pavement Alliance (GAPA) meets in South Africa

GAPA is a global network of regional and national trade associations whose activities are related to the production and laying of asphalt for pavements that was founded in 2008. The Founding Members of GAPA were the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association – AAPA, the European Asphalt Pavement Association – EAPA, the Japanese Road Contractors Association – JRCA, the National Asphalt Pavement Association in the United States – NAPA, and the South African Bitumen Association – SABITA.
The GAPA members are meeting once a year to exchange information about relevant topics to identify existing and future developments in the asphalt sector and to build common strategies to deal with such developments. The focus is on fostering international cooperation to help respond to the global challenges and opportunities impacting the asphalt pavement industry.
This year’s meeting will be held in Sun City, South Africa on 17 October 2019. Representatives of associations from all over the world will follow the invitation of the European Asphalt Pavement Association (EAPA), that will chair the meeting.
