Developments on Cold Recycling with Foamed Bitumen

Resource-saving technologies are more in demand than ever before. They do not necessarily have to be revolutionary.

Most times, they can be a simple adaptation of a proven system. One such examples is the Wirtgen cold recycling process that has been proving its credentials for many years – and already meets the demands of tomorrow.

Advancing technology means that it is also constantly evolving. As such, it is worth revisiting to see just what the system can deliver.
