Abstract

The massive exploitation of non-renewable natural resources which has taken place in the last decade has led to significant global environmental concerns. In such a context, the use of non-petroleum-based binders for the construction of bound layers of flexible pavements can represent an effective solution to limit crude oil depletion. The research work presented in this paper focused on the effects of ageing on the rheological and chemical characteristics of a non-bituminous binder, indicated in the study as a “biobinder”, and a traditional neat bitumen selected as a reference material. Binders were analyzed in four ageing conditions obtained by making use of the Rolling Thin Film Oven and of the Pressure Ageing Vessel. Rheological behaviour of binders was investigated by means of oscillatory tests carried out in a wide range of temperatures and frequencies with a dynamic shear rheometer. Chemical structure was explored via Thin Layer Chromatographic analyses and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. The experimental work demonstrated that mechanisms of ageing which are involved in biobinders completely differ from those experienced by petroleum-based binders. Concerns were expressed with respect to the applicability to non-conventional binders of currently available ageing techniques and of chemical characterization methods.
