A major in-place recycling project on RD 919 for Eiffage Route

Ariège Departmental Council has entrusted Eiffage Route with an in-place road surface recycling project using the ARM 2500® workshop, between Fossat and d'Artigat. It is an opportunity for the company to invite clients from surrounding departments and urban areas to discover the many advantages of this ground-breaking technique. 

The ARM 2500® developed by Eiffage Route’s teams is a mobile recycling workshop designed for the upkeep of upper road surface layers.  The process involves cold recycling with foamed bitumen or emulsion and hydraulic binder. 

By its very nature, in-place recycling plays a part in environmental development. .It regenerates worn-out subbases and improves their mechanical resistance, providing better sustainability. 

  • ARM 2500® reprocesses in situ, thus limiting the transport of materials and reducing atmospheric pollution. Recycling is an effective means of limiting greenhouse gas emissions. 
  • In-place recycling under traffic considerably reduces inconvenience for road users. 
  • By reclaiming the worn-out pavement’s aggregates and binder, ARM 2500® substantially limits the use of non-renewable resources 

 
Road surface pavement recycling is an economical road network maintenance technique which reduces overall highway upkeep costs
