Within the framework of this project, a comparative study of the behavior of hot (HMA) and semi-hot (WMA) asphalt mixtures has been carried out. For this, a zeolite-type additive produced in Zaragoza has been used, with similar characteristics to the existing commercial zeolites for this application (Aspha-min® and Advera®WMA) from among the different existing technologies to produce WMA. 

For this, two types of mixes have been manufactured, AC 16 surf 50/70 D and AC16 surf 35/50 S, with and without zeolite at different compaction temperatures following existing regulations.
