Welcome Note

Assalammualaikum and greetings to everyone. I welcome all of you to the Sustainable Asphalt Research Group (SARG). SARG resides at the School of Civil Engineering, Engineering Campus, Universiti Sains Malaysia.  It was formed with the noble aim of supporting, promoting, achieving and maintaining sustainable development in the context of asphalt technology.  In tandem with this aim, members of SARG have geared their research endeavors on sustainable asphalt, focusing on warm mix asphalt, asphalt recycling, use of waste materials, utilization of natural asphalt and porous asphalt. Whilst the formation of SARG is barely a year old, research undertakings related to sustainable asphalt especially porous asphalt, has been conducted for many considerable years, while the research findings has attracted not only local but also international attention.  It is our hope that the outcome of these research undertakings will provide impetus for sustainable road construction practice which is important for the well-being of the nation’s asphalt industries. Do browse through and we hope this website will provide some helpful and useful insight to where our group is heading on the mission to help pave our nation to a sustainable tomorrow.
