VM0039 Methodology for Use of Foam Stabilized Base and Emulsion Asphalt Mixtures in Pavement Application, v1.0
24 June 2019
This methodology provides a framework for the quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions associated with the production and installation of Foam Stabilized Base (FSB) and/or asphalt emulsions as substitutes for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) in road construction projects located in the United States.
In this methodology, performance benchmarks have been established for the determination of additionality and the crediting baseline. These benchmarks are based on GHG emissions from the baseline scenario, which enables a measurement of emission reduction potentials through the substitution of FSB and asphalt emulsions for HMA.
