Warm-Mix Asphalt and Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement Helps Meet U.S. Emission Goals
Two key technologies to assist America in reaching its goal to reduce emissions and energy consumption include WMA, which reduces energy use during production, and RAP, which reduces the need for virgin materials. In league with the Federal Highway Administration, the National Asphalt Pavement Association annually conducts a survey, gathering data from asphalt mix producers on the use of these innovative technologies and quantifying the emission reduction achieved through the industry’s widespread adoption. “Asphalt Pavement Industry Survey on Recycled Materials and Warm-Mix Asphalt Usage 2019” represents 212 companies owning 1,101 asphalt production facilities located in 48 states, the District of Columbia, and one U.S. territory. Conducted since 2010 the data showcases the environmental record of the industry.
