In 2017, a group of Americans from across the country met to develop an affordable, sustainable and energy efficient way to build and maintain roads in the United States.
They called their plan “America’s Asphalt Slurry Seal,” or ASAS.
Asphalt Sludge Seal has been around for almost a decade.
It’s a cheap, environmentally friendly, and durable sealant that is used on asphalt pavements to insulate them from moisture and corrosion.
The ASAS is a renewable, non-toxic, and biodegradable material that is widely used in construction and construction related activities around the world.
According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), an organization that evaluates engineering and construction standards for the nation, there are about 4 million asphalt sludge sealers in the US.
That is more than a quarter of the country’s roadways.
They are also the primary sealant used on over 1 million concrete pavement.
In order to make ASAS available to American homeowners, the government funded a $40 million program called “ASAS Project” that was supposed to be completed in 2018.
The contract was awarded in April 2018 and it was supposed be completed by August 2019.
Instead, it was delayed until November 2019.
In a report on the delay, the ASCE found that the ASAS Project was “over budget and under-delivered” and that it was “not feasible to complete the ASIS project by the end of 2020.”
In order to meet the project’s goal of providing an ASAS sealant to 1 million homes, the contract also included an additional $1.5 million in funding.
The delay was a blow to many Americans, but it didn’t stop people from working to make sure ASAS was available to them.
In 2017, the Americans from Washington State met to design and build a road that would be able to withstand a 15 foot fall and withstand being washed down with a 1,000 gallon tank of seawater.
The project was called “AsphaltSludgeRoad.”
In the end, they built the road with asphalt sludging, a product called “asphalt slurry.”
The product, which is made from asphalt, is an abrasive and is used to seal the concrete surface of asphalt sloping roads.
According the ASCA, “as a result of this process, the slurry seals the road surfaces and is an efficient sealant for pavement.
It also helps with road maintenance, especially during flooding events.”
The road, which took the shape of an old concrete driveway, is now a part of the ASIAS Project.
In 2017 alone, over 3,600 ASAS Road Builders, or ASB, were certified as being “asbestos free.”
According to an ASCA report, the road is a success story that is “an example of a road in need of a permanent, sustainable asphalt seal.”
