Bitumen / Roading Products

Roading is a high carbon cost industry. Total carbon cost of a 10km asphalt pavement project estimated at 26m kgs CO2

Global production of bitumen is estimated currently at 742bn barrels, growing at 3% p.a with an additional 3.5 to 4.0 million kms of roading estimated to be built by 2050

We are working with an Australasian company that provides services to the roading and pavement industry to:

  • produce economically viable ‘high strength’ roading solutions, with minimal change to the existing road deployment practice/equipment
  • Improve the economics, environmental and safety aspects of roading

 Nilo product developed so far has outperformed in strength tests, with early analysis of economic and environmental performance looking favourable
