The study investigates the potential use of Styrofoam waste (polystyrene) as bitumen modifier in asphaltic concrete for road pavement construction. It aims to meet two distinct needs which are to reuse plastic waste as well as protecting the environment and to improve the resistance of bitumen which is prone to cracking or creep under extremes of temperature. The results will be presented by the ability to produce homogenous and stable modified bituminous mixture and the workability of the asphaltic concrete. Laboratory tests for bitumen which are Penetration Test, Ductility Test and Softening Point Test were undertaken in order to evaluate the properties of the modified bituminous blends of different Styrofoam waste content (0%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10% by weight of bitumen). Results showed that modified bitumen yields lower penetration value, very minimum value of ductility and rise in softening point. Next, the performance of the asphaltic concretes produce using the modified binders were evaluated through Marshall Stability Test and result indicates that the performance increases up to 8% addition of Styrofoam content as modifier.
