Reduce CO2 in Road Construction

High-Performance. Sustainable. Asphalt.

Ecopals offers a sustainable and high-performance asphalt additive. Together with our renowned partners – the Fraunhofer Institute and the University of Kassel – we are helping road construction to shape the future and at the same time contribute to the solution of the global plastic problem.

High Effective

Our additive makes roads robust for the future and, in particular, increases their resistance to rutting. 

Efficient

Our additive is easier to compact than conventional PMB, has storage capability and therefore grants flexibility of use.

Sustainable

Our additive is made from plastics  burnt otherwise and cuts the CO₂ footprint by 0.7 kg per m² compared to regular asphalt. Additional microplastic is NOT released either!

Checked By Experts

Our raw materials come from carefully sorted streams and go through a quality control process developed and carried out by the Fraunhofer ICT. This enables us to guarantee quality, health and environmental protection.

Our mission for our environment

EcoPals builds and breaks new ground. 

We are eliminating the concept of waste and transforming the valuable resource of plastic into a high-quality asphalt additive. We can give meaning back to millions of tonnes of plastic, reduce the production of plastic as well as bitumen for road construction and save millions more tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Reduced plastic production

Our process means that asphalt additives no longer have to be made from virgin plastic.

Reduced crude oil production

Since our product can replace a portion of the bitumen in asphalt, less crude oil now needs to be refined.

Reduced CO2 emission

Our process and the material used save up to 0.7 kg CO₂ per m² of asphalt pavement.n.

Our Social Goal

EcoPals, together with our sister company NIDISI, is also driving innovation in road construction in countries of the global south. In this way, we support infrastructure projects on the ground that help people all over the world to take ownership and develop their potential.

We are looking for reinforcement

What to do with all the plastic?

+++ What are we supposed to do with all these plastic bottles? +++

There are so many good ideas to process bottles themselves! And we leave this field to the experts. BUT who takes care of the labels?

Give us hundreds of thousands of tons of them and we’ll build you roads to the highest quality standards that…

1. … reduce crude oil production for road construction
2. … lower the industry’s carbon footprint
3. … are recyclable
4. … lead to fewer construction sites due to their high durability
5. … and yes – that don’t release increased microplastics.

Thank you Julia Wünsche for nominating us for the #scaleabottle & #scaleathon2021 initiative. We are happy to nominate Circulate.global and Kunststoffschmiede

First pilotroad.
We did it!!!

+++ We did it! Waste plastics have a future +++

Hello planet,

A small piece of asphalt, but a milestone on the road to a sustainable future!
After a successful first tryout of our prototype, we‘re more excited than ever to get our ideas out on the streets.

Why burn waste plastics when we can turn them into a qualitative added value for roads?

A huge thank you goes out to our partner Rhomberg Bau Gruppe !

Ecopals is winner
of the Plastic Revolution Award

Now it’s official! The Young Impact Innovators Award goes to EcoPals! 🏆💚🌏

The Plastic Revolution Jury loved their idea to reduce global plastic pollution by integrating non-recyclable plastic waste as a bitumen substitute in road construction because of its high innovative value and great potential to be implemented all around the world.

Congratulations EcoPals aka NePals e.V.! We are sure your name will be on everyone’s lips very soon!
