Sustainability and circularity in road sector: ACF Mapei additives enable an intense usage of the asphalt wearing course instead of being disposed as bituminous conglomerates.
Mapei additives, ACF-L1, ACF-L2 and ACF-L3 enable the recycling of RAP – Recycled Asphalt Pavement, by building up the mortar fraction lost when the bitumen is oxidated.
The environmental benefits coming from these products is massive, starting from the avoiding of the landfill disposal (environmental footprint very high), passing through the decrease of the asphalt wearing course fraction with the goal to give a new life to bituminous aggregates. We measured the environmental benefits coming from the ACF, by means LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) method.
To give an additional boost to our study, we involved Assolombardia Green Economy Network in cooperation with GEO (Green Economy Observatory) of IEFE (Università Bocconi), which was promoting the CERCA (Circular Economy come Risorsa Competitiva per le Aziende) project, aiming at the identification and measure of the circular economy approach in company practices.
