Life cycle assessment of road construction and reuse of waste incineration residues

Project Details


The project develops a life-cycle-assesment model for road construction with and without use of incineration residues. The model accounts for all uses and savings in ressources and environmental emissions including savings in residue landfilling if the residue is use in road construction. A key issue is quantification of the leaching from the materials and test data and sub-models have been developed.
