    Abstract

    Plastics and rubber productions worldwide has witnessed a rapid growth and are used in a wide range of industries including food and pharmaceutical, water treatment, chemical, brewing, mining and quarrying, aerospace, power generation, packaging, recycling and distribution. While people are enjoying the benefits,
    wastes from plastic and rubber have generated significant environmental concerns such as land occupation. To alleviate the situation, waste plastic and rubber are mixed with asphalt to produce asphalt rubber, to improve the fatigue performances of asphalt. However, some difficulties, such as the high viscosity of
    the rubberized bitumen and the requirement of higher temperature for production of rubberized asphalt have been found to be barriers, which limit its application.
