In this article was investigated ways of production of Rubber-Bitumen Compounds (RBC) and Rubber-Asphalt mix based rubber crumb (CR) from worn tires. The physico-mechanical characteristics of paving bitumen BND 60/90 modified with rubber crumb and spent engine oil. The structure of rubber crumb was characterized by optical microscopy. A possibility of using these rubber-bitumen compounds for preparing rubberized asphalt mixture was investigated experimentally. Physico-mechanical characteristics of RBC and Rubber-asphalt are determined by standard methods.
