Abstract

Nowadays, only a small percentage of waste tires are being landfilled in Albania. The large environmental impact has made the government to support some companies for building up the recycling industry of the waste tire in Albania. The Recycled Tire Rubber have been used in many fields such as agricultural uses, sport applications, civil engineering, rubber modified asphalt applications etc. Therefore, different parts of the world have used rubber modified asphalts where the benefits were being more widely experienced and recognized. Based on it, our paper will be focused on the asphalt mixtures produced with Recycled Tire Rubber Modified Bitumen’s (RTRMBs). Our proposal can reduce environmental impact from the waste tires and improving the quality of the road constructions in Albania.
