Victoria | Green Roads Asphalt

Green Roads Asphalt mixes contain up to 50% recycled content, including combinations of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), recycled glass sand and recycled plastics. Our warm mix technology further lowers the carbon footprint of Green Roads asphalt by up to 40%, ranking our asphalt production as the greenest in the industry.

Green Roads Asphalt mixes meet VicRoads specification, with approval for the inclusion of recycled asphalt, glass and plastics in various mixes. Our asphalt plants produce approximately 300 tonnes per hour and are equipped to store more than 600 tonnes of hot asphalt.

Millions of tonnes of Green Roads Asphalt mixes have been produced to build greener roads throughout Melbourne and surrounding regions. They include:

Green Roads Asphalt

Hot or warm mix asphalt, incorporating up to 50% of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP). Green Roads Asphalt has been demonstrated to reduce project carbon emissions by *up to 65%.

Green Roads PolyPave Asphalt

PolyPave Asphalt is available in hot or warm mix asphalt. It incorporates recycled, high-density polyethylene hard plastic (HDPE) such as shampoo bottles, ice-cream containers, milk bottles and Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP).

The use of recycled HDPE plastics in PolyPave is proven to increase the durability, tensile strength, rut resistance and longevity of the pavement.

Green Roads Glassphalt

Warm or cool mix asphalt containing high volumes of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) and Recycled Glass Sand (RGS) sourced locally from the millions of glass jars and bottles recovered through residents’ kerbside collections. The use of Glassphalt Asphalt can achieve carbon savings of *up to 65%, recycles a local waste problem material and preserves natural resources.
