Due to the current over-exploitation and use of oil resources imminent danger of being exhausted, petroleum bitumen from oil, the problem of oil resources and environmental development of the current situation forces us to constantly look for and application of new, renewable alternative materials. Currently, the world's best research and development of biomass energy is an inexhaustible renewable energy. This paper researches on biological asphalt collect summary summarizes the current research status of biological asphalt, aggregate its application in road engineering performance, analyze their development, application prospects. Current research indicates that biological asphalt bitumen is an efficient alternative to petroleum products, to enhance road performance while conserving resources better.
