Juan José Potti underlined the Spanish leadership in terms of improved bituminous mixtures with rubber dust from tires that are no longer in use: “In the United States they have an important habit of using bituminous mixtures with tire dust, but the level of development of which we enjoy in Spain, in terms of different techniques, since rubber can be incorporated in various ways and in different percentages, it is much superior ”.
