Warm-Mix Asphalt Wins NOVA Award

From NAPA Action News

The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) has received the prestigious 2013 NOVA Award from the Construction Innovation Forum (CIF) for its work to speed the deployment and uptake of warm-mix asphalt.

“NAPA is proud to accept this award on behalf of the asphalt pavement industry, warm-mix technology developers, and our partners at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and state departments of transportation nationwide. The success of warm mix is due to cooperation and a willingness to innovate from road owners and builders alike,” said NAPA President Mike Acott.

The CIF NOVA Award recognizes and advances significant innovation in all areas of the construction industry around the world. Winners are selected by a jury of internationally recognized experts following a comprehensive investigation process.

In selecting warm mix to win a 2013 NOVA Award, the investigators cited its ability to improve compaction, reduce fuel or energy use, improve worker comfort, lengthen the paving season, and reduce overall paving costs.

The 2013 winners were announced Nov. 12 at the annual Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) National Conference in Tucson, Ariz. The award was accepted by NAPA Director of Engineering Kent Hansen, P.E., and Matthew Corrigan, Program Manager at the FHWA Office of Pavement Technology
