Topic 17 Environmental Assessment of Waste and Industrial By-products used in Road Construction

The necessity to spare natural resources, legal limits to dumping and more generally, the implementation of a policy for sustainable development, are incentives for the use of waste and industrial by-products as road construction materials.

Papers were called for on the characterization of these materials with respect to the risk of impact on the environment in the case of reuse, on methodologies and test methods selected in order to characterize before and after laying, and the noxiousness of reused waste and by-products.
