Article from National Geographic: Better Road Building Paves Way for Energy Savings

Warm-mix asphalt placed in Yellowstone National Park helped build U.S. government support for the energy-saving technology, which also contributes to smoother pavement.

Warm-mix asphalt placed in Yellowstone National Park helped build U.S. government support for the energy-saving technology, which also contributes to smoother pavement.When considering how cars and trucks generate such a large part of the world's greenhouse gas pollution, it's easy to overlook what lies beneath them. But under all that traffic, there are roads. And the paving material itself-the asphalt, concrete, and rock-and how it is placed, have an important impact on the atmosphere.

Energy goes into the construction of every highway and byway, whether it's made of asphalt, concrete, or even gravel; whether it's a narrow ribbon winding around mountains, an endless flat stretch across the prairie, or a congested freeway. Moreover, the way that roads are built and maintained has a significant impact on how much energy is burned by the vehicles that roll-or crawl-on the surface.

As governments weigh spending money to restore or expand existing roadways in the developed world and to construct entirely new ones in the developing world, they are asking questions about sustainability that were never considered in the early years of infrastructure build-out. The answers are not easy.

With public investment about $190 billion per year on highway, street, and bridge construction in the United States and Europe, researchers are working to develop a way for policymakers to make road construction choices that take into account the energy in every step of the pavement's long lifecycle. And the asphalt and concrete industries are introducing new technologies and mustering evidence on old ones, all to demonstrate their commitment to making paving greener.

Perma Patch Cold Patch: Production using your locally available ingredients

Cantat Associates Inc. presents a complete technology of production of cold mix asphalt using locally selected ingredients (aggregate, bitumen, diesel), allowing producers to minimize raw material costs and maximize their profits. The mix design, prepared at our research centre in Toronto, Canada, will present manufacturers a complete formula for producing cold mix asphalt using their local ingredients, with only a small addition of the Perma Patch concentrate, based on the following (sample) formula.

 
1000 kg (100%) of final cold mix asphalt (cold patch) product, modified by the Perma-Patch concentrate, consists of 950 kg (95%) aggregate material of fraction 5-10 mm and 50 kg (5%) liquid binder (LB).
 
The LB composition (50 kg = 100%) is as follows:
- Bitumen - recommended grade BND 90-130 - 36.475 kg (72.95%), can also use BND 60-90
- Fuel oil (diesel) - 12.150 кг (24.30%) - summer or winter
- Perma-Patch concentrate - 1.375 kg (2.75%)
 
The exact formula for production of cold patch, is determined based on the quality of the aggregate material, at the McAsphalt Industries Limited Research Centre in Canada.
