What is Crumb Rubber Modified Asphalt?
Redmond Clark, president of Asphalt Plus L.L.C. spoke at the 34th Clemson University Global Tire Conference in regards to the benefits of using Dry Process crumb rubber modified asphalt.
“The window of opportunity is open, but it won’t remain open, because more aggressive industries will beat us to it,” said Redmond […]
Crumb Rubber Asphalt, Paving the Way Forward
Dickinson County Road Commission is testing the use of recycled tires in a colder climate. Ask the average lay person how road agencies can reduce road construction and increase pavement longevity and you’ll get a laundry list! Perhaps one of the most common fix-alls the public talks […]
Researchers at Michigan Tech are working with the Upper Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy and the Dickinson County Road Commission to test a rubber asphalt project. Zhanping You, Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Michigan Tech helped to secure a $650,000 grant which was partially funded by the Michigan EGLE […]
Over the past decade, researchers in the U.S. have tried to develop an approach that will allow the introduction of dry process rubberized asphalt pavement in a way that is both cost-effective and free of the engineering challenges that have limited the use of crumb rubber modifiers (CRM) in the past.
CRM has proven […]
