This programme aims to develop concepts and strategies and to demonstrate their applicability to increase the long-term durability of pavements while at the same time ensuring a reduced dependency of raw materials and a low fossil energy demand. The solutions must be feasible, proven and cost-effective.
The programme has three main focus areas:
- Reliable life cycle and social cost-benefit analysis of “green asphalt”
- Simplifying the use of RAP
- Usability of Super Materials
Following an open Call between November 22, 2017, and March 1, 2018, the Programme Executive Board subsequently selected three successful projects.
PavementLCM – A complete package for Life Cycle Management of green asphalt mixtures and road pavement.
Project Partners: University of Nottingham (UK, coordinator), TNO (Netherlands), VTI (Sweden) and the University of Palermo (Italy).
CRAB for OERE – Cold Recycled Asphalt Bases for Optimised Energy & Resource Efficient Pavements.
Project Partners: Univeristy of Kassel (Germany, coordinator), the University of Nottingham (UK), Uni Delle Marche (Italy), IFFSTAR (France), VTI (Sweden).
FIBRA – Fostering the implementation of fibre reinforced asphalt mixtures by ensuring its safe, optimized and cost-efficient use
Project Partners: University of Cantabria (Spain, coordinator), TUBS (Switzerland), EMPA (Germany), BAM (Netherlands), SINTEF (Norway), Veidekke (Norway) and Virginia Tech (USA).
