The pavement industry is currently focused on developing a more sustainable product. This requires contractors and agencies understanding what sustainability is and what choices can be made to improve the environmental, economic, and social impacts a pavement can have. This course focuses on three facets which can impact the sustainability of asphalt mixtures: ground tire rubber modification of asphalt binders, warm mix asphalt, and compaction of asphalt mixtures. Through reusing waste materials, reducing emissions and energy use at plants, and improving the overall performance of the asphalt mixture through compaction, the industry will be able to assess its impact on the sustainability triple-bottom line. 1. The participant will understand what being sustainable means and how it applies to pavements. 2. The participant will understand how ground tire rubber is processed and used in conjunction with asphalt binder.
