Project description

The objective of this study is to quantify the energy and environment impacts from using recycled materials for highway construction. Specifically, when recycled asphalt pavement is re-used for producing hot mix asphalt or when recycled concrete aggregate is used in concrete, how much energy will be utilized and how much are the greenhouse emissions.
