Advantage 70

Ongoing innovations, such as warm-mix asphalt, reduce fuel consumption and emissions in the asphalt industry.

It is clear from current calculations that the advantage of asphalt is its lower CO2e footprint, compared to other materials, especially evident in the through life calculation. Add to this a stress on lowering the temperature of both mixing and laying asphalt, which itself contributes yet further to this energy reduction, and the asphalt advantage grows greater still!
