Summary:
The purpose of this paper is to provide clarity on the true costs and true benefits of Rubber-Modified Asphalt (RMA).  To
do this, three things will need to be examined:
1.        The history of and costs associated with tire disposal;
2.        Alternative (disposal, incineration, etc.) uses of scrap tires;
3.        Realistic costs and realistic “value added” of RMA, based on data accumulated where there is significant history.
