InnoTeer - Recycling for road construction waste
Recycling asphalt sustainably - Fraunhofer develops recycling process for tar-containing road construction waste
If old roads have to be renewed, the question arises: Where to put the portions that are contaminated with tar? Existing disposal methods are expensive, not very sustainable and generate a lot of CO2.
In the "InnoTeer" project, four Fraunhofer institutes are developing an alternative for rendering tar from road debris harmless and recovering the remaining mineral content in high quality. With just one plant, large amounts of CO2 could already be saved.
