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:

  1. Reliable life cycle and social cost-benefit analysis of “green asphalt”
  2. Simplifying the use of RAP
  3. 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).

PavementLCM’s official brochure can be found here.

Project results:

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).

Project results:

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).
