Reduction of waste over time. Traditional tarmac produces waste from cutting out or squaring potholes and also from fresh tarmac that is loaded on the day and not used. It then goes to landfill. Black Gold 15 has a much longer lifespan.

the solution

Black Gold 15 is a resin-based product, meaning that it offers several significant advantages over traditional tarmac, with one of the most notable of these advantages being the impact Black Gold 15 has on the environment. With its significantly lower carbon footprint and a massive reduction in landfill waste, there is clear evidence that Black Gold 15 is an environmentally responsible alternative to the tarmac in use today. When comparing the environmental impact of Black Gold 15 to that of tarmac, it is necessary to consider the production process, application, durability, and end-of-life disposal associated with both materials.

 

From the very first step, the advantages of Black Gold 15 are prominent, with the production process of our solution typically generating a lower carbon footprint compared to tarmac. Tarmac production involves large amounts of energy and results in high levels of damaging emissions from heating and mixing raw materials, such as aggregate and bitumen. In contrast, Black Gold 15 is a resin-bound system requiring less energy and emitting fewer harmful gases during its production.

Next, the application of our product can contribute to significant reductions in carbon footprint. The versatility of resin-bound systems minimizes the need for heavy machinery during installation, thereby reducing fuel consumption and emissions associated with construction activities. The durability of Black Gold 15 can lead to longer-lasting surfaces, thereby reducing the frequency of maintenance and repair, which in turn decreases the overall carbon footprint associated with upkeep and renovation.

Finally, the longevity and durability of our solution contribute to the reduction of waste generation over time. Its resilience and resistance to cracking or deterioration can greatly extend its lifespan compared to traditional tarmac, meaning fewer replacements are necessary, leading to reduced waste output over the long term. Traditional tarmac, when in need of frequent replacement or repair, often ends up in landfills, drastically contributing to environmental pollution and the depletion of landfill capacities. In stark contrast, Black Gold 15 offers a sustainable alternative by being fully recyclable. When it comes to the end of its much longer lifespan, reducing the amount of waste destined for landfills. This characteristic aligns with the growing emphasis on sustainable and circular construction practices, where materials are reused or recycled to minimize the burden on landfills and the environment.

In summary, the environmental benefits of using Black Gold 15 over tarmac are vast and numerous. Through every phase of its life, from its lower carbon footprint during production and application to its significant reduction in landfill waste, this resin-based product presents a compelling case for environmentally responsible construction and infrastructure development.

By choosing Black Gold 15, stakeholders can contribute to mitigating negative environmental impacts and foster more sustainable practices within the construction industry.
