In-Place Pavement Recycling: Gaps, Barriers and a Clear Path Forward

This article describes in-place pavement recycling and reclaiming techniques, including cold in-place recycling (CIR), cold central plant recycling (CCPR), full depth reclamation (FDR), hot in-place surface recycling (HIR), hot in-place recycling and remixing, and hot in-place recycling and repaving. The author reports on the 2014 International and Western States In-Place Recycling Conference that was held in Denver, Colorado, held to discuss in-place recycling, to assess the current state of the knowledge, and to identify gaps in knowledge or barriers to usage for each form of in-place recycling. The author notes that although significant improvements have been made with in-place recycling technology since 2000, the use of these alternatives for rehabilitation and maintenance of highways has not increased in parallel.
