The product ECO-Asfalt® from Peab Asfalt is produced using bio-fuel for drying and heating the aggregate material, the process which requires the greatest amount of energy in the production process.
ECO-Asfalt® can completely replace conventional hot-mixed asphalt in all types of applications, such as high-speed roads, airfields, industrial plants, ports, streets and cycle paths.
ECO-Asfalt® and ECO-Asfalt® Plus was produced at thirteen of Peab Asfalt’s stationary asphalt plants in Sweden in 2017, and production reached over 1.8 million tons.
The asphalt types covered in this EPD are AG, ABB, ABT and ABS, in all cases intended for the paving of roads. The asphalt is CE-marked as required by SS-EN ISO 13108-1-8 and SS-EN ISO 13108-20-21.
Asphalt is 100% recyclable, offering the possibility to further reduce environmental impact by reducing the need for new raw materials.
Today, reused asphalt is included in the manufacture of new asphalt for several applications, with maintained technical performance.
The recommended amount will however vary from case to case. This EPD includes an example showing the potential environmental impact from including 10% reused asphalt.
