Cement Bitumen

emulsified asphalt mixtures are more beneficial and better than hot mixtures, environmentally, economically, and logistically advantages over hot mixtures. However, the emulsified bitumen is at the attention of the scientist as structural layers due to their deficient performance and proneness to be damaged early by rainfall. Mechanical characteristic of emulsion mixtures can be enhanced and […]

Plastic Bitumen

Most of the industrial activities leave an enormous amount of waste, industries like factories, mines, and mills. Moreover, this industrial waste, city waste in the form of garbage containing non-bio degradable materials are also formed within the municipal limits. This makes up one of the biggest pollution offenders for the environment, and it places a […]

Rubber Bitumen

Developed countries in terms of the industry have 9 kg of wasted tires generated per person every year. For instance, in America, there are an estimated amount of 2 to 3 billion of illegal restored scrap tires. In the mean, while the same issue exists in European union but on a larger scale and with […]
