The National Asphalt Pavement Association and Federal Highway Administration released results of their latest industry survey.
It’s a relatively unknown fact that asphalt is the most recycled product in the United States but a recent survey by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) has confirmed that to be true.
Our country’s most diligent recyclers are in fact asphalt mixture producers, who utilize more than 94 percent of old asphalt pavements in new pavement construction. Approximately 39% of asphalt pavements and roads were produced with energy saving warm mix asphalt, using recycled materials, nationwide. That sure is something to be proud of in the Asphalt Paving Industry.
Of all the materials recycled in the United States, nothing is recycled as consistently as asphalt pavement mixture. The latest survey of asphalt mix producers finds that more than 99 percent of the asphalt pavement material removed from roads and parking lots in 2019 was put back to productive use, primarily in new asphalt pavement mixtures.
The survey of the U.S. asphalt pavement mixture production industry has been conducted for each construction season since 2009 by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Over the years, the survey has documented increases in the use of recycled materials and warm-mix asphalt.
“Warm-mix asphalt is produced using technologies and additives that reduce the production and placement temperature of asphalt pavement mixtures, reducing the amount of fuel used in the production process. The most common technology is plant-based foaming, which injects a small amount of water into the asphalt during production. A number of environmental, worker safety, and construction benefits have been realized through the adoption of warm-mix asphalt.”
