remexit® – a versatile alternative

Roads must withstand the impacts of traffic and climate for as long as possible. Consequently, good planning and execution as well as the selection of suitable materials are of particular importance, while aspects of environmental protection and sustainability are also becoming increasingly important. The regulations of the German Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV) define the relevant standards for road construction including the use of substitute building materials such as recycled aggregates in the specifications.

Environmental regulations for secondary aggregates

Roads and earthworks: Secondary aggregates and the environment

There are a number of environmental regulations that deal with the reuse of mineral waste. Affected by theses rules are recycled aggregates as well as secondary aggregates from energy-from-waste processes in form of incinerator bottom ash (IBA) such as granova® or other by-products from industrial processes. The protection of soil and groundwater is always decisive for the use of these materials. more

Technological background

Technical requirements of recycled and secondary aggregates

The requirements regarding the structural properties of recycled aggregates for use in earthworks and road construction are defined in the regulations of the German Road and Transportation Research Association (Forschungsgesellschaft für Straßen- und Verkehrswesen). more

Two important technical working aids:

Handbook and classification disc

If you are interested in detailed background information on the use of recycled or secondary aggregates, we recommend our handbook on secondary aggregates. In addition, we developed the classification disc which displays the application areas by simply turning the disc. You can order both German tools here
