Pavement preservation is a set of methods and practices utilized to extend the service life of pavement surfaces. These processes are cost effective in that some reuse existing road surfaces during construction. There are many types of pavement preservation techniques that can be performed, each with their own set of clearly defined equipment and specifications.
The Federal Highway Administration and Environmental Protection Agency have recently researched the amount of recycled products in the country per year. The results suggest that road widening and resurfacing projects reuse 80% of removed asphalt to form new roadways and highways.
When compared to others such recycled products as aluminum cans, newsprint, plastic soft drink bottles, glass beverage bottles and magazines, it was found that asphalt was the most recycled product. This comparison was based not only in terms of volume recycled but also available amounts for recycling.
