2nd International workshop on BioMaterials in Pavements

The 2nd International Workshop on the Use of Biomaterials in Pavements brings together experts, researchers, and practitioners from around the globe to explore innovative approaches to sustainable pavement construction and maintenance. This workshop serves as a platform for sharing cutting-edge research, breakthroughs, and practical applications related to the integration of biomaterials in pavement engineering.
Biomaterials, sourced from natural and sustainable origins, have gained significant attention due to their potential to revolutionize traditional pavement construction. This workshop aims to shed light on the latest advancements in utilizing these eco-friendly materials to enhance pavement performance, durability, and environmental sustainability.

Key Themes and Topics:

  1. Bio-Based Binders and Additives: Delve into the advancements in using bio-based binders and additives derived from plant oils, bio-resins, and other organic sources, as alternatives to conventional petroleum-based binders. Discover their potential to improve pavement properties while reducing environmental impact.
  2. Natural Fibers and Reinforcements: Explore the utilization of natural fibers like jute, coir, and bamboo as reinforcements in pavements. Understand how these biomaterials contribute to enhanced pavement strength, durability, and sustainability, promoting a shift towards eco-friendly construction practices.
  3. Recycled Biomass and Waste Materials: Investigate the incorporation of recycled biomass and waste materials, such as rice husk ash or coconut shell ash, in pavement construction. Uncover how these materials contribute to sustainability, waste reduction, and improved pavement characteristics.
  4. Microbial Soil Stabilization: Discuss the application of microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi, for soil stabilization in pavement construction. Explore their potential to enhance soil properties, improve compaction, and mitigate soil erosion, thereby ensuring a more robust and sustainable pavement foundation.
  5. Environmental Impact and Sustainability Assessment: Deliberate on the broader environmental impact of integrating biomaterials into pavements. Explore methodologies for assessing and mitigating the environmental footprint associated with the production, use, and disposal of biomaterial-enhanced pavements.
  6. Recyclability and Circular Economy: Discuss strategies and technologies for enhancing the recyclability of biomaterial-based pavements, contributing to a circular economy. Explore the potential for reusing and repurposing biomaterials within the pavement lifecycle.
  7. Testing Methods and Performance Evaluation: Address the crucial aspect of testing methods and performance evaluation specific to biomaterials in pavements. Highlight innovative testing techniques and protocols that ensure the quality, safety, and durability of biomaterial-enhanced pavements.
