Did you know...
the asphalt industry reuses and recycles nearly 100 million tons of its own product every year? The use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) reduces the carbon footprint of road building and also saves landfill space. With reclaimed asphalt pavements, the old binder in the road is reactivated, reducing the need for virgin asphalt cement.
