Presents information on the research program initiated by the U.S. National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) at the National Center for Asphalt Technology about the applicability of the European technologies for reducing production temperatures of asphalt to U.S. conditions and paving practices. Factors attributed to the increase of production temperatures; Processes that the NAPA group evaluated in Europe; Description of zeolites; Experimental plan developed to evaluate the products used in the processes.
