Warm-mix and RAP: A Winning Combination

Mandie Van Wormer's insight:

"Using warm-mix asphalt (WMA) technologies in recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) mixes is a win-win scenario in every respect. The cost benefits are evident—reduced material costs and less fuel usage. Plus, the enhanced workability of warm-mix can facilitate using increased RAP contents, which translates into even greater cost savings. With sustainable advantages such as conserving natural resources and reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, the WMA/RAP combination also scores high in terms of environmental stewardship."

Jairo Arenas Giraldo:The social nets give a great manifesto of acceptance at world level and they are used like form of obtaining employment, to carry out a business, to communicate with people, to incentivate a managerial business.
