Code of practice for the reduction of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from cutback and emulsified asphalt: En14-271/2017E-PDF

"The main objective of this Code of Practice (the Code) is to protect the environment and the health of Canadians while maintaining road safety by recommending best practices that encourage, when suitable, the use of low volatile organic compound (VOC) emitting asphalt. Specifically, the Code aims to reduce VOC emissions from the asphalt sector by at least 40% over a 6-year period. The Code seeks to fulfil this objective by providing guidance to the manufacturers, importers, sellers and users of asphalt. In particular, it recommends ways to help reduce VOC emissions from the use of cutback asphalt and emulsified asphalt"--Objective, p. 2.
