Bitumens modified by waste food additive: Antioxidant effects and high rheological

Author(s): Cesare Oliviero Rossi

This contribution a reviews the current understanding of bitumen structure and the consequences in terms of properties, with a strong emphasis on the rheological properties. The links between chemistry, structure and mechanical properties are highlighted in the framework of an updated colloidal picture of bitumen. In particular it explores for the first time, the potentialities of additives from natural resources, i.e., non-toxic and eco-friendly biocompatible compounds, acting both as adhesion promoters and as rheological modifiers.
