Roadbuilding and paving are no exception. That’s why engineers and public works officials are turning to a process called full-depth reclamation (FDR) with cement. This method rebuilds worn out asphalt pavements by recycling the existing roadway, reducing the raw materials and energy consumption.
The old asphalt and base materials are pulverized in place, mixed with cement and water, and compacted to produce a strong, durable base for either an asphalt or concrete surface. FDR uses the old asphalt and base material for the new roadway base. There’s no need to haul in aggregate or haul out old material for disposal. Truck traffic is greatly reduced, and there is little or no waste.
