Sustainable Asphalt Pavements: A Practical Guide
Focused on what an asphalt producer or asphalt project can do to address sustainability within the confines of good business practice, this publication defines sustainability and the specific actions to take to incorporate sustainability in a corporate/organizational strategy, project delivery, mix design, materials production, construction activities, and pavement design. We identify sustainability in public project procurement and how sustainability efforts are evaluated.
