In this project several variants were developed, some of which were based on the French EME (“enrobé à module élevé”). After extensive testing in the laboratory ten variants were laid in 2006 on a heavily trafficked section of the E19 between Brussels and Antwerp. This was followed by the drafting of recommendations and performance specifications for this type of asphalt mixture, in cooperation with the Flemish department of mobility and public works (MOW). All information on this project can be found in a research report (CR43/07) published by BRRC.
