Re-road – End of life strategies of asphalt pavements (Re-road)
Start date: Jan 1, 2009, End date: Dec 31, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The majority of the European roads are paved with asphalt material. The dismantling and end of life strategies for these pavements are very divergent among the EU member states and the associated countries. In general the share of recycling the reclaimed asphalt in new asphalt courses is rather lower than it could be technically. The Re-road project aims to address these problems with a holistic approach to the technical and environmental aspects of all steps in the recycling procedures of asphalt material. The overall objectives of the project is to o be able to raise the level of re-use of asphalt concrete to 99% with a minimum of downgrading of the material and a minimal introduction of virgin material into the mixes made with reclaimed asphalt.
