Abstract

The additive Sasobit was tested in three asphalt mixes at two temperatures. Volumetric properties, carbon dioxide emissions and mechanical properties were tested to determine if Sasobit would be an effective additive for the asphalt industry. It was found that the use of Sasobit in Warm Mix Asphalt can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions, costs and energy used by the asphalt industry without affecting the quality of asphalt pavements.
