End of life strategies of asphalt pavements (Re-Road)

The main objective of this four-year European research project (from 1st January 2009 through 31st December 2012; fifteen partners) conducted under FP7 was to maximize the reuse of reclaimed asphalt (RA) in bituminous mixtures, with as little downscaling of the material and as little use of new material as possible. For that purpose, the various aspects of the full process were studied and optimized (while comparing and harmonizing the procedures from the partnering European countries): dismantling strategies, characterization of RA, handling, environmental aspects, production processes, performance and life considerations. The results from this project have been bundled in several reports that can be downloaded here
