Sustainability symposium hosted by new Associate Member

Netherlands |

The University of Antwerp’s Energy & Materials in Infrastructure & Buildings research group recently hosted a bitumen Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) symposium attended by Eurobitume Technical Director Mike Southern.

‘Towards a greener road infrastructure: by integrating environmental aspects in procurement and design’ featured an interesting mix of research-based, technical, application and academic presentations from experts, as well as lively discussion panels. 

The symposium concluded with an insightful PhD defence by Joke Anthonissen, whose thesis investigated the environmental impact of bituminous road pavements and the use of reclaimed asphalt in asphalt mixtures - based upon the current practice in Flanders.
