Is the black asphalt bad for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Some environmental activist groups are worried about by-products released from isolating asphalt from petroleum and their effects on global climate change.  But as it remains in the road, it is not burned like other oil products such as gasoline.  The problem asphalt presents is another side of the peak oil argument, although the EPA estimates that 80% of the asphalt taken from old roads is recycled to make new ones.
