Abstract

Both the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (Next Generation EU Program) and the development strategies for Smart Cities focus on cycle and pedestrian paths. Their pavements must be safe, durable and sustainable and considering the need to preserve the resources that Planet Earth offers to humans, it is essential to opt for innovative construction technologies that allow recycling methods without necessarily involving the addition of first-use materials. In the field of road infrastructure, the recovery of material deriving from the demolition of old pavements (RA - Reclaimed Asphalt) is only possible thanks to the use of specific products. A state-of-the-art rejuvenator is currently being used for the construction of cycling paths with 100% cold-mixed RA. This product is currently being studied for the INFRAROB project: “Maintaining integrity, performance and safety of the road infrastructure through autonomous robotized solutions and modularization” (Horizon 2020) with particular reference to “potholes patching” materials. Some technical data of the experiences developed to date are shown below.
