Hot mix asphalt mixtures (HMA), which are energyconsuming due to high production temperatures exceeding 150◦C, are widely used in road construction. These temperatures result from heating the components of the mixture, aggregate and bitumen, to the temperature required to ensure proper bitumen viscosity and coating of the mineral material. HMA production-related high emissions of greenhouse gases have a strongly documented negative effect on the environment.
