RMRC Announces Proposed Research from Pooled Fund Monies

September 2008
C&D World;Sep/Oct2008, Vol. 1 Issue 5, p6
The article reports on planned research projects announced by the Recycled Materials Resource Center (RMRC), a federally funded group in the U.S. that investigates opportunities to use recycled materals in the highway environment, as of September 2008. The projects include a study focusing on characterizing the engineering properties of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) used as subbase, base and structural fill.
