Recent low-carbon infrastructure legislations around the world have led to increased interest and research in alternative flexible pavement binders. TRB hosted a webinar on Monday, February 12, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM Eastern that reviewed strategic, practical, and implementation needs for low-carbon alternative binders for flexible pavements. Presenters shared the motivation for seeking alternative binders, including bitumen availability, life-cycle assessment, and cost. Presenters also addressed the life-time performance and post-life performance of alternative binders.
This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Binders for Flexible Pavement.
