Expeced result

  • Reduces usage of paving aggregate, bitumen and crude petroleum and Uses scrap tires
  • Crumb rubber is made from recycled tires that would otherwise be discarded or burned, having therefore a high environmental benefits
  • Tires are scrapped at a rate of 1.1 tire/person/year leading to over 300 million tires scrapped per year9
  • Tires have potential for tire fires which produce acid smoke harmful to humans and the environment as well as leaves behind a oily residue. Tire fires are not extinguishable and in some instances burn for several weeks.
  • Tires take up landfill space and as land is becoming more and more scarce, it will lead towards illegal dumping. This drives down home values and causes socio-economic segregation as tires typically are dumped in low income areas.

Reduces Road Noise

  • 50% quieter than conventional asphalt and 85% quieter than grooved concrete
  • Traffic noise studies have been conducted on all types of pavement surfaces. Asphalt Rubber has been proven to reduce the decibel level substantially — as much as 85% when compared to concrete. A significant factor in traffic noise is the «grooves» cut in concrete to add traction and the joints and seams between concrete slabs.
  • Tires make less noise on Asphalt Rubber because «grooves» are not necessary for traction. The noise reduction is often substantial enough to eliminate the need for other noise abatement measures.
