Ex-situ Recycling

Procedures using specialist plant to condition and mix recycled materials, usually reclaimed from the construction site, with hydraulic binders or bitumen remote from the construction site. This is then transported to site and reused.


Ex-situ Cold Recycled Bound Material

Ex-situ cold recycled bound material comprises base and binder courses produced in a fixed or mobile mixing plant from graded aggregate processed from arisings from the excavation of roads and similar sources, blended if necessary with other aggregate and bound with hydraulic or bituminous binders separately or in combination (Source TRL 611).
