Rapid and Accurate Identification of coal tar in road binder
Roads built before 1990 often used binder that contained coal tar, an absolute hazardous material. During road or utilities repairs, excavated road surface material must be correctly classified as hazardous or non hazardous before removal and disposal. Fast and accurate identification and quantification of coal tar in binder is therefore essential for waste classification of excavated road construction materials to minimise delays to traffic. This seminar discusses the options.
