The UK’s first carbon-neutral pavement
Using cold recycling technology developed in-house, Aggregate Industries has taken a major step in the direction of more sustainable pavements.
The durability of bitumen is the focus for a ground-breaking collaboration between Nynas and the French road construction specialist Colas. Rheological testing of age induced cracking takes centre stage.
Investing in customer value
Since 2014, Nynas has had a laboratory at the University of Antwerp. This January the equipment was augmented with a new, advanced rheometer. This makes it possible to conduct all standard rheological tests in a temperature range from -30°C to 200°C. The new rheometer also has an especially high torque, which means that it can exert a high stress on the sample.
Golden standard for the Slussen Bridge
The pavement system for a new bridge includes both asphalt and waterproofing. This makes major demands of quality awareness and the ability to coordinate different technologies.
Talking point: E&E Congress 2021
Three leading industry representatives talk about their expectations of the E&E Congress, which for the first time is being held digitally this year.
The road to new mobility
An international benchmark study highlights the road industry’s role in the transformation of road infrastructure and the development of new mobility.
Minimising the risk of boil-over
When water comes into contact with hot bitumen, a powerful reaction occurs. This is because when water is heated to the temperature of the bitumen, it vaporises and expands.
The global Norwegian industrial group Yara International is the first in the world to use a totally electric container ship in commercial operation. To make the transition from land to sea transport, a new quay facility is being built.
Stop and full speed ahead
On 27 November 2020, after 46 days and 8,000 activities with no accidents and not one single person being infected with COVID-19, a turnaround was completed at the Nynas refinery in Harburg.
Road maintenance, Finland
The Finish road network has a total length of 454,000 km. The State-maintained section – 78,000 km – consists of main roads class I and II, motorways and regional and connecting roads. In 2019, approximately 1,800 km of the State-maintained road network were repaved.
