With the introduction of an internationally-aligned benchmarking tool, Australian road owners and authorities can now be confident that the asphalt products they use are as sustainable as they claim to be.
Keeping Australia’s roads in good condition is no easy task, but Road Maintenance has been fixing and innovating since the 1970s.
Tyre Stewardship Australia has been helping create a circular economy by finding new ways to use waste tyres, from crumb rubber asphalt to permeable pavements.
Through its development of preblended crumb rubber modified binder technology, SAMI Bitumen Technologies is overcoming challenges and helping to increase opportunities for the use of crumb rubber binder in Australian road surfacing.
With crumb rubber increasingly recognised as a sustainable alternative to traditional road construction material, Tyre Stewardship Australia is shifting its focus to producing more practical outcomes for the Australian industry.
