Promoting Application of Recycled Aggregate in Public Construction
Taoyuan city rooted in two Life Circle and had largest international airport in Taiwan. The city government proposed NTD110 billion budget and erected mass public constructions recently. However, public constructions required plenty of asphalt concretes, but the traditional way had low-efficiency and posed negative effects to environment. As a result, recycled aggregate became more and more important. The quality of recycled aggregate possessed some downsides. In order to improve recycled aggregates, Taoyuan city government promoted circular economy through public-private partnership. Recently, it replaced 33,500 tons of asphalt concrete. If it will apply to the Aerotropolis road, it is expected to replace 1.65 million tons.
