Asphalt Paving Is Environmentally Friendly

Asphalt Paving Is Environmentally Friendly, asphalt paving austinIn this new age of environmentalism, several products and materials have received a bad reputation for not being green, and among them is asphalt. Because asphalt stores heat and reflects it upward, it has wrongly been accused of contributing to greenhouse gases and climate change. However, no scientific evidence has ever supported this idea. In fact, Asphalt Paving Is Environmentally Friendly with materials available today.

Asphalt Paving Is Environmentally Friendly

Asphalt is both efficient and recyclable. Producing asphalt and laying asphalt pavement only requires 80 percent of the energy it takes to pave surfaces with other concrete materials. In addition, asphalt is completely recyclable. The pavement industry recycles or reuses approximately 65 million tons of asphalt each year, which is a full 99 percent of the material being replaced. Asphalt can also be mixed with other recyclable materials, such as glass, roofing shingles and tires, to achieve specific effects or technical specifications.

Asphalt is stronger and more durable than many other pavement materials, and it has gained a nickname among those in the industry: perpetual pavement. Maintaining asphalt surfaces only requires the replacement of the top layer. The bottom layer can be used over and over again with results matching those of completely new asphalt. In addition, when concrete pavement has reached the end of its useful lifespan, it has traditionally been broken and scrapped. However, concrete pavement can now be saved and reused through a recycling process involving asphalt.
