Use of Recycled Asphalt Pavement in Asphalt Plants

Use of Recycled Asphalt Pavement in Asphalt Plants

Sustainable Pavement | Washington Asphalt Pavement Association

About 100 million tons of asphalt pavement is reclaimed each year, and over 95 percent of that total is reused or recycled. When asphalt pavement is reused in a new asphalt mix, the old asphalt cement is rejuvenated so that it becomes an active part of the glue that holds the pavement together, just like the old aggregate becomes part of the

Feasibility of using 100% recycled asphalt pavement

Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) is the largest recycled good in the United States and 80 million tons are recycled yearly, saving taxpayers about $1.5 billion dollars. This paper explores the possibility of utilizing 100% RAP materials in asphalt pavement. Asphalt mixtures are produced at 135°C in a typical asphalt plant. However, at 135°C, not all binder from RAP materials may not become
