Reduce CO2 in road construction!

ecopals is working towards ressource efficiency in road construction.

Together with a strong network of partners from the fields of science, politics and the construction industry, we have dedicated ourselves to developing sustainable solutions for the road construction industry. In cooperation with Fraunhofer ICT and the University of Kassel, we have already developed a process to transform non-recyclable plastic waste into a performance enhancing asphalt additive – the EcoFlakes.

EcoFlakes.

Made from non-recyclable plastics.

ecopals offers a CO2-reducing and performance enhancing asphalt additive made from otherwise not recyclable plastics. Together with our renowned partners – the Fraunhofer Institute and the University of Kassel – we have developed a product that promotes a more sustainable road construction industry while also tackling the worldwide plastic problem.

Performance

EcoFlakes increase asphalt stiffness, provide good aging properties and allow for a reduction of material used while maintaining asphalt longevity.

Inexpensiveness

Our decentralized production allows for lower costs and increased pricing stability in comparison to reference asphalt additives.

Sustainability

EcoFlakes reduce CO2 emissions in asphalt production by up to 30%. Thereby, 34 million tons of CO2 could be avoided worldwide each year – the equivalent of the ecological footprint of 8,5 million people.

Quality

In close collaboration with the recycling industry and independent testing authorities, we can ensure our 3 quality standards through regular material testing.

Rethinking road construction.

That will only be possible if we work together. ecopals is commited to pushing new ideas – for example by looking at non-recyclable plastics as a valuable ressource and transforming them into a high quality asphalt additive. Thereby, we can create a new purpose for millions of tons of existing plastics, reduce the production of virgin plastics and bitumen, and avoid millions of tons of CO2 emissions.

Potential

Road construction has an enormous potential for social and environmental impact.

Unfolded

Therefore, we need to develop technologies that actually make a difference.

Together

Which we can only achieve by collaborating and working together.

Our social impact goal

ecopals is promoting road construction innovations in the global south together with Nidisi, our affiliated non-governmental organisation. We do so by supporting infrastructure projects which enable people around the world to develop their potential and take over local ownership.
