Abstract A shortage of asphalt and polymers is creating opportunities for engineers to utilize alternative pavement materials. Three types of bio oil, untreated bio oil (UTB), treated bio oil (TB) and polymer-modified bio oil (PMB) were studied in this research. The research investigated the producing procedure of bio oil, the compatibility analysis between bio oil and petroleum-based asphalt, the rheological properties of asphalt binders modified and partially replaced by bio oil, the mechanical performances of asphalt mixtures modified by bio oil, and the lifecycle assessment and environmental impact of bioasphalt use.
