Quantification of Emission Potential from Asphalt Binders Using Mass Loss and Opacity Measurements

The two main objectives of this research were to: determine is mass loss and/or visible emissions can be used to identify asphalt binders with potential visible emissions problems, and establish guidelines for a simple method for determining the visible emission potential of asphalt binders for use in hot mix asphalt contractor plant laboratories. The results of the research showed that mass loss and visible emissions do not correlate well when products from different oil fields/horizons are considered. Therefore, a single measurement such as mass loss is nor practical for pass/fail visible emission potential test.
