As part of our Road to Recycling initiative, a road construction industry panel identified 12 materials with great potential in road construction that are readily available in Texas in potentially large volumes, offer engineering benefits, cost-effective pricing and no increased environmental risks.
We have assembled packets of information for each of these materials. The packets include a material overview, research summaries, case studies, a list of current specifications, a list of material sources and a summary of experiences with the material.
|Coal combustion by-products, including fly ash, bottom ash, and hydrated fly ash|
|Compost and Mulch|
|Metals, primarily steel and aluminum|
|Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP)|
|Recycled Concrete Aggregate|
|Slags, including ground granulated blast furnace slag|
