Eco-Efficient Pavement Construction Materials Book Summary

Pavement construction materials are a complex but popular engineering material. Whether or not it is used to pave a busy highway, waterproof a rooftop or smooth out an airport runway, its production and use can have major negative impact on the environment. Eco-efficient Pavement Construction Materials acquaints engineers with the research findings into new eco-efficient pavement materials and how they can be incorporated into future pavements fostering a more sustainable pavement construction industry.Divided into three distinctive parts, Eco-efficient Pavement Construction Materials places great emphasis on current research topics such as: pavements with recycled waste, pavements for climate change mitigation, self-healing pavements and pavements with energy harvesting potential. Part one considers techniques for recycling different types of waste materials, including reclaimed asphalt, waste plastic as aggregates and as binder and life cycle assessment. Part two reviews the contribution of pavements for climate change mitigation including design of cool pavements, development of new coatings for high albedo target as well as the design of pervious pavements. Part three focus on self-healing pavements addressing novel materials and design and performance assessment. Finally, the book discusses the case of pavements with energy harvesting potential, addressing different technologies on this field. Offers a clear and concise life cycle assessment of asphalt pavement recycling for greenhouse gas emission with temporal aspects Applies key research trends to green the pavement industry Includes techniques for recycling waste materials, design of cool pavements and self-healing mechanisms and key steps in energy harvesting potential
