Research Report 406 Quantifying the benefits of waste minimisation

Published: | Category: Environmental impacts of land transport , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

A methodology was developed in 2006–09 to quantify the benefits of waste minimisation in road construction. The methodology uses estimates of the energy and emissions involved in all operations, raw and recycled materials used, and the costs, energy use and emissions associated with traffic delay. A spreadsheet was developed as a tool for road controlling authorities to decide on the merits of using a waste minimising technique, and to compare the associated benefits and costs.
