Environmental improvement measures in asphalt (English)
Abstract [en]

This report deals with environmental improvement measures in asphalt production

and examines the willingness to invest in environmentally friendly technologies. The

main reasons of this paper are that the asphalt industry have a large impact on the

environment and the transition to green technologies is slow, and to clarify the

opportunities around environmentally friendly asphalt production.

The main purpose of this report is to compile relevant knowledge in the

improvement of the environmental measures of the asphalt production and thus

contribute to a faster reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. The questions covered

are:

• How has the asphalt been used over time and until?

• How does the asphalt industry effect the environment?

• What are the technical solutions?

• What are the costs of the different technical solutions?

• What is the trend for more environmentally friendly asphalt production?

The thesis was concluded through literature studies, consultations with people in the

asphalt industry and trough several interviews.

The results of the report show that there are many different measures to reduce the

environmental impacts from asphalt production, and the main challenge for producers

is to choose which method is most suitable for their company.

The interviews report that the willingness to invest in environmentally improving

techniques exists and that the trend to produce more environmentally friendly will

increase. Increased requirements and a greater demand for environmentally friendly

asphalt production from customers are desired.
