  • Leaching of milled asphalt pavement amended with waste to energy ash

    The environmental suitability of using Waste-to-Energy (WTE) ash as a partial substitute for aggregate in hot-mix asphalt concrete was investigated using a series of leaching lysimeters. Eight samples of processed asphalt concrete manufactured with 25% by weight WTE ash as aggregate were leached using stainless steel lysimeters. A ninth lysimeter contained asphalt without WTE ash. Simulated ...
