We have successfully received a NSFC Grant on bitumen VOCs reduction. The Grant title is Synthetic Ca(OH)2-incorporated Zeolite as effective VOCs sorbents and ite multi-functional effect for Asphalt materials, with a financial support of 600 thousands RMB, from 201901 to 202212.
Since 2013, Dr. Xiao and his group focused on research on bitumen VOCs. They used GC-MS, TG-MS and some other technics to charaterize the bitumen VOCs. The volatile information of components and amount can be successfully reported with their proposed methods. They also reported the possibility of design Green Bitumen with Lower VOCs, by sythesis effective VOCs absorbers.
Seven peer reviewed journal papers have been published on bitumen VOcs related topic. They are:
