Chemistry of Interfaces
Today, asphalt is heated through fossil fuel combustion and asphalt management accounts for about one percent of Sweden's carbon dioxide emissions. The project SMMART (Swedish Magnetite Microwave Asphalt Road Technology) develops a microwave-based technology for heating asphalt with mixed magnetite.
