Sevilla hosted the Mining and Minerals Hall (MMH) 2019 where professionals from the mining industry come year after year to share their current knowledge and speak about the future of the sector.
On 16th October CALCINOR was present at this event as speaker in the technical session “Rolling towards the circular economy: The use of lime in the different phases of a project”. A workshop which included a presentation of the main applications that lime has in the different phases of the construction of a highway with an asphalt surface.
The use of calcium hydrate during the preparation of the bituminous asphaltic mix has been shown to provide improvements in its durability. In a similar way lime milk is crucial in improving the drainage of the adherence between the base and the road surface.
Hence, a process of circular economy can be observed, not only with an increase in the durability of the asphalt (up to 25%), but also through the use of materials already present on the trajectory of the proposed highway.
In response to the needs of companies working in the asphalt sector, CALCINOR has a new product called TISOCAL®. A high-concentration, high stability lime milk that is easy to use and which retains all its effectiveness. Watch out for the presentation of all the details of this product in the next few posts.
