(TOWARDS GREENER PAVEMENTS)
The Seminar is jointly organised by the Centre of Excellence for Engineering & Technology, Public Works Department (CREaTE) and Road Engineering Association of Malaysia (REAM) to provide a platform for presenting research findings, discussing and exchanging ideas on innovative and cutting edge technologies relating to the use of natural rubber in roads.
Adding natural rubber to asphalt road surfacing certainly attracts interest from both the rubber producers and road engineers. Successful addition of the rubber would increase the demand on the national commodity and thus boost the rubber industry in this country. On the other hand, if the service life of the road surfacing could be prolonged, it would reduce the cost of the road maintenance.
The main objective of the Seminar is to update the road industry players on the latest development pertaining to the use of natural rubber in roads. It is also aimed to give awareness to the road industry players on issues and challenges arising from the implementation of using natural rubber in roads.
