Project Title: The use of rubberized asphalt mixture incorporated with warm asphalt additives on urban road pavements in Hong Kong

Applicant: Dr. Yuhong Wang, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Total Approved Grant: $323,500 (ECF & WWGF: 50/50)

Duration: 10/2/2014 to 9/8/2014

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

Scope:
This project aims to design rubberized asphalt mix incorporated with warm asphalt additives and to promote its use in Hong Kong. Particular interest will be placed on its engineering performance in Hong Kong’s climate and traffic conditions, potential benefits under reducing emissions, odour, energy consumption and traffic noise, and the strategy to facilitate its use in Hong Kong.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
