Evotherm® Warm Mix Asphalt

As part of its strong commitment to designing more environmentally friendly road infrastructure, Eurovia pioneered the development of so-called warm mixes, which have limited energy impact, in Europe as far back as 2003. The most recent addition to Eurovia’s Tempera® product range is the Evotherm® DAT5 process.

 

 

Evotherm is a chemical additive developed by the U.S. Mead Westvaco company, a world leader in asphalt emulsifiers which is introduce during the mixing process and allows for the plant mixing temperature to be reduced which dramatically reduces the greenhouse gas emissions, saves energy and eliminates fumes and odours.
