Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 40-13. Recycling and Reclamation of Asphalt Pavements Using In-Place Methods

In recent years, petroleum and aggregate economics and supply have increased the need for high quality, cost effective alternatives to virgin paving mixtures. Transportation professionals are asking for maintenance methods which optimize the value of in-place materials while minimizing traffic congestion and the environmental impact of paving operations. Current pavement recycling methods answer all of these needs, in particular (1) Hot In-Place Recycling (HIR) (2) Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR) and (3) Cold In-Place Recycling (CIR) These techniques provide economical solutions which reduce demand on raw materials, yet keep paving operations within environmentally-friendly conditions. Key issues to be addressed include the need for specific in-place recycling treatments and a discussion of how they might be used within the scope of a planned pavement preservation program.
