Warm mix asphalt that can lower the temperatures necessary to produce asphalt mixes offers several benefits. First, warm mix can eliminate nearly all emissions, which would ease the permitting process for plant owners. Second, it requires less energy to produce, so money is saved through reduced energy costs. Third, it is well-suited for paving projects that are far from hot mix asphalt plants. The mix could also allow contractors to extend the construction season.
