THE USE OF WASTE AND LOW-GRADE MATERIALS IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION: 6. SPENT OIL SHALE

The use of low-grade and waste materials as alternatives to naturally occurring aggregates in the construction of roads helps to conserve the supplies of good quality aggregates and assists in problems arising from the disposal of unwanted materials. This report is one of a series on individual materials which is aimed at bringing together the information that is available on each of the major waste products that have roadmaking potential. It deals with spent oil shale and it considers the extent to which this type of shale can be used in road construction. The report discusses the types and quantity of shale that are available, the purposes to which it can be put in road construction and the tests needed to ensure that shales meet the required specifications.(a) /TRRL/
