Research comparing the use of PolyCom Stabilising Aid to traditional methods of re-sheeting resulted in a fourfold carbon footprint reduction.
Preliminary results on the use of Polycom Stabilising Aid compared to traditional methods of re-sheeting show that the construction and maintenance of unsealed roads can be reduced by over four times with Polycom Stabilising Aid.
The PolyCom influence on road maintenance life cycle stages begins with materials production. There is a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions when compared to the extraction of virgin quarried material associated with traditional road maintenance methods. PolyCom Stabilising Aid allows for the use of in-situ resources.
The amount of hours running machinery and the amount of water required is reduced. The transport of quarried material and the amount of waste generation is also significantly reduced.
The research conclusions indicate reduced CO2 related emissions resulting in a fourfold carbon footprint reduction.
