RONDON-QUINTANA, H.A; HERNANDEZ-NOGUERA, J.A  and  REYES-LIZCANO, F.A. A review of warm mix asphalt technology: Technical, economical and environmental aspects. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2015, vol.35, n.3, pp.5-18. ISSN 0120-5609.

In general terms, warm mix asphalt (WMA) technology has great potential for successful use in road works construction projects. However, concerns remain regarding the durability and behavior of WMA mixtures in the long term, which need to be addressed. This review focuses on the technical, economic and environmental advantages and disadvantages. The review concludes that the main advantageof this technology, at the moment, concerns the environment. At the end of this work, the authors include certain recommendations for future works in order to continue strengthening the development of WMA technology.

Keywords : Warm mix asphalt; WMA; manufacturing; design; additives.
