 Summary:
 The use of warm mix asphalt (WMA) instead of hot mix asphalt (HMA) is more environmentally friendly. Developed WMA technologies allow to reduce the mixing and compaction temperatures by 20-40°C. One of them is asphalt foaming technology which provides a foaming effect in mixing phase by use of water-containing additives such as zeolites. Zeolite improves the performances of bitumen and asphalt mixtures. Adding zeolite, especially synthetic, reduces permanent deformation in the asphalt.
