Overview

After Participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • To understand the types of waste and by-product materials that have been used in the construction of roadway pavements
  • Describe the potential benefits and cautionary action that may be required when using waste and by-product materials
  • Identify important issues and inspection and testing tasks to maximize the successful use of wastes and by-products

Description

Agencies around the world have long permitted the use of wastes and other by-products use in roadway construction. Some of these products are intended to improve the performance of the pavement or subgrade materials and others are used to reduce the cost of higher valued materials. Some agencies embrace the use of waste and by-product materials as contributing to the sustainability of our infrastructure and reducing green house gas emissions while others refer to their use in roadways as linear landfill. 

This webinar provides a series of examples of waste and by-product use and a history of their performance for a variety of roadway applications. Advantages and disadvantages of the use of each type of product and some guidance for successful the design and construction of each. 

Course Outline

This webinar outlines the history and use of waste and by-product materials used in the construction of pavements. This includes a wide range of products such as lignosulphates, cement and lime materials for the stabilization of subgrades, crushed glass, recycled concrete and asphalt, bailed tires, recycled plastics, shredded tires, construction demolition waste and lightweight aggregates for base and subbase and recycled concrete and asphalt, glass, steel and blast furnace slags, waste shingles, engine oil, asbestos and ground rubber for pavement surface materials.
