The Challenges of Warm Mix Asphalt as a Mature Technology

Laboratory tests and field investigations show promising results of structural performance of warm mix asphalt (WMA). Also, the lower environmental burdens and fuel requirement in WMA production increase sustainability in the asphalt industry. However, there are challenges that significantly affect WMA performance and marketing in the future. In this paper, all these challenges are discussed, and the trend of WMA technology is evaluated. The statistics indicate that the energy market plays a pivotal role in enthusiasm for WMA. Lastly, WMA requires further investigations to meet requirements of post-modern pavement, as a new concept of pavement design in the 21st century.
