Black is the New Green :: Asphalt Pavement and Sustainability

Friday, August 24th, 2012

As Americans become increasingly concerned with the concept of Going Green, environmentally sustainable pavements are also rising in popularity. Fortunately, the asphalt pavement industry has been working for decades on making its pavement greener.

  1. Asphalt is America’s most recycled material.
  2. Asphalt is the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly pavement on the market.
  3. While production of asphalt pavement material increased by 250% between 1960 and 1999, total emissions decreased by 97%.
  4. Warm mix asphalt reduces the demand for energy in the production and construction of pavements.
  5. Asphalt is a low carbon footprint pavement.
  6. Asphalt pavement has a long life & resurfacing is quick.
  7. Porous pavement helps improve stormwater management.

From production to paving to rehabilitation to recycling, asphalt pavements minimize impact on the environment.
