Less energy is consumed - and emissions are lower - when building asphalt pavements.
Rubblization of concrete pavement with an asphalt overlay is another way to save energy and emissions, because the rubblized concrete stays in place to be used as the road base. It doesn't need to be hauled away, new base material doesn't need to be trucked in, and landfill space is saved. In addition, the need for mining, crushing, and processing virgin materials is reduced.
