In the local asphalt industry, and in particular amongst members of the Southern African Bitumen Association (SABITA), there are very few people who have not heard of the Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) trials that are happening in Hammarsdale, eThekwini. This process started back in 2008 under the auspices of what became the Warm Mix Interest Group of South Africa and which comprises client bodies, consultants, asphalt manufacturers and contractors, technology suppliers, as well as other relevant and related parties.
