Analysis of possible use of pyrolytic products as binders in asphalt mixes

Lidija Avsenik, Marjan Tušar

Abstract

New binders are produced in order to reduce dependence on crude oil. This study aims to evaluate pyrolytic products and their blends with bitumen, as a possible substitution for bitumen. Bitumen of the penetration grade 70/100 was used as a matrix for the blends. Standard test were conducted in order to determine mechanical properties of the reference bitumen, pyrolytic products, and their blends. The results obtained during this study indicate that pyrolytic products can be used as a substitution for bitumen originating from crude oil or, in proper proportions, as an additive to that bitumen.
