Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
COWI has been involved in recycling projects since 1960. Our pioneering experience and determination to stay at the forefront of developments and innovations in recycling mean that, today, our expertise is difficult to match.
On major road and airport projects, recycling percentages in the order of 80% have been achieved, leading to impressive savings in the order of 20-40% of the cost of traditional pavement solutions. In addition to the lower pavement construction costs, the pavements have significantly extended pavement life. This is achieved through our special expertise on age-hardening of bitumen and recycling agents.
Benefits to society encompass secondary cost savings as well as environmental benefits:
COWI has a 20-plus year of design and implementation expertise in critical issues of asphalt recycling. This includes rejuvenation of aged-bitumen, ageing resistance of bitumen/rejuvenators and recycling of sand-asphalt.
