This webinar is based on MPC project 575, Characterization of the Plant-Based Bio-Asphalt Binder and Bio-Additives. Asphalt binder used for pavement construction is obtained mainly by the distillation of crude oil in refineries. The scarcity of natural resources, environmental concerns and emerging needs for sustainable materials have spurred the development and use of materials and processes that are renewable and environmentally friendly. In response to this need, initiatives have been taken to develop a new generation of bio-based construction materials as a result of continuous innovation in the use of agricultural products, byproducts, and biomass as a material feedstock. Therefore, the development and evaluation of innovative plant-based asphalt binders and additives, such as cellulose, will help to increase the use of bio-materials to maximize the sustainability of the ground transportation system.
