What is Asphalt Recycling? - Pavement Recyclers

Asphalt recycling starts with recycled asphalt, which contains reprocessed pavement. According to the Federal Highway Administration, reclaimed asphalt (otherwise known as RAP) starts with old, broken or damaged asphalt. "Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) describes removed and/or reprocessed pavement materials containing asphalt and aggregates.

The use of RAP in new asphalt concrete mixtures can result in cost savings for both aggregate and asphalt binder. When properly utilized in mix design and production, lower costs can be realized without a sacrifice in the serviceability of the pavement. However, cost savings may not be realized by the owner and there may be a loss in

Environmental and economic analyses of recycled asphalt

For an asphalt concrete (AC) mix, the percentage of asphalt binder that is substituted by recycled asphalt binder from RAP or RAS is known as the asphalt binder replacement (ABR) ratio. Environmental performance of pavements constructed with RAP and RAS is often expressed in terms of energy and GHG savings at the material production

Costs - Martins Zaumanis

In the UK, it is estimated that for a typical asphalt plant the WMA technology installation costs are low compared to other means of reducing emissions and the payback period is up to one year (Carbon trust, 2010). Higher RAP use, which may be realized by the use of WMA, can also significantly reduce the material costs of asphalt mixtures.
