Optimizing Europe's road quality with recycled rubber asphalt

For the sustainable transformation of mobility in Europe to succeed, it is not only necessary to switch to e-cars, but also to efficiently rehabilitate the road network. Asphalt modified with tire rubber can make a valuable contribution here. The durable rubber asphalt sustainably improves road quality throughout the EU, keeps raw materials from End-of-Life Tyres in the recycling loop, and pays off ecologically and economically. A ZIM project group is to advance the technology of the future.
