Final Report - ECOLANES (Economical and sustainable pavement infrastructure for surface transport)

Project ID: 31530
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the ECOLANES project, the main objectives of which were to develop, test and validate steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) pavements that will contribute towards the strategic objectives of the thematic priority area of sustainable surface transport. ECOLANES aimed to use roller-compaction techniques (based on existing asphalt laying equipment) as well as recycled materials to reduce construction costs in the range of 10-20 %, construction time by 15 % and energy consumption by up to 40 %.

The report is essentially based on the work performed during the third and final reporting period, with reference to the previous periods of the project. It begins with stating the project's objective, the participating consortium and the specific objectives of the period. It later explains the work done under various work packages and concludes with the project's outcome.
