The development of our sustainable asphalt products, which supports our shared journey to reduce carbon in our industry, never stands still.
With the help of Shell Bitumen, Aggregate Industries has developed SuperLow-Carbon; the innovative next step on the carbon reduction journey.
The evolution began by reducing the embodied carbon footprint of our asphalts: improving production processes, using alternative energy sources, and mixing at reduced temperatures. In SuperLow-Carbon, we have gone even further, including a biogenic material within the bitumen that effectively locks carbon within the asphalt rather than releasing it back into the atmosphere.
The use of these biogenic components in SuperLow-Carbon means that CO2 remains within the asphalt even when it is recycled, creating a carbon sink.
