Tires used to make ‘rubber asphalt’ in Kuwait

Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) has employed the latest rubber asphalt technology to create a new form of road paving material seen as more environment friendly.

The endeavor, which deals with the use of hot paving grade asphalt cement to improve road durability, is part of new plans KISR is exploring, according to Suad Al-Bahar, who oversees the research body's construction projects.

She highlighted the project as a marquee environmental initiative in Kuwait, saying it will be instrumental in averting various forms of infrastructure damage, which in turn, has an adverse effect on road safety.
The project illustrates how the partnership between Kuwait's government and private sectors can yield fruitful results, she added, saying such initiatives help push the country's 2035 plan closer to fruition.

This breakthrough project entered its second phase on Saturday, where the new technology known as the 'Superpave' mix design method was applied on a makeshift road stretching 3,550 meters, Dr. Salah Zarab, a scientific advisor, revealed.

Prior to use, the road pavement materials were found to meet quality standards through rigorous laboratory testing, added the advisor, who expected the method to be highly effective.

Looking ahead, he said KISR teams will use an apparatus called "Falling Weight Deflectometer," which is a testing device relied on by civil engineers to evaluate the physical properties of pavement.

We Indians are the first to degrade our own country before others. India does not need any technology from KISR, as we are not in the same level of Kuwait, as far as Technology advancement is considered. In fact ISRO is supporting KISR in space sciences.

Guys, we are not doing anything to our country other than sending tax free money to our Indian Banks. Let us not belittle our motherland.

Jai Hind...
