Redevelopment of taxiways

Planning is under way for the redevelopment of the taxiway of the airport. A new means of construction is planned, which, for each layer of bitumen and cement, uses techniques for recycling the material from which the existing taxiway was made. The progress made in asphalt and concrete recycling techniques has led to the development of green infrastructures, which offer numerous advantages in terms of environmental sustainability (fewer virgin resources used, a lower impact on traffic and transport, lower gas and noise emissions), as well as reducing costs and the time required to carry out the work (rationalisation of processes, lower business costs for recycling in situ, reduction in the time required to carry out the work and related costs). The reduction in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere for the work proposed, using recycled asphalt rather than traditional asphalt, is estimated at around 1750 tonnes.
