This project will focus on the testing of materials with small grain sizes as robust, open-pore substrate carriers and search for a suitable herbicide to be added to the carrier to form a mixture which will then function as a joint filler in pavements.
Development of a herbicide joint filler in pavements that is based on demolition debris
2011 - 2014
This project aims to develop a substrate that prevents weed infestation in pavements. Demolition debris is considered a suitable substrate carrier, as it is inevitably generated during the demolition of buildings and there is currently no sustainable recycling approach.
