How Significant are Emissions from Asphalt Paving

2021-8-11  Recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) is also commonly incorporated into the APM, which is produced at temperatures from 300-350°F to allow for its application at worksites. From a regulatory perspective, the main source of pollutant emissions at an APM plant results from fuel combustion to dry and heat the aggregate materials.
