Nu-Rock technology has important application in the road building process as a long overdue replacement to concrete road base, sub-base and aggregates. Nu-Rock pavements are stronger, lighter, have a higher flexible ratio As well as being more durable than traditional concrete-based pavements. Nu-Rock pavement contains up to 95% waste materials and is 100% recyclable, providing road builders with a superior performing, more affordable and greener alternative to traditional concrete equivalents. Nu-Rock pavement can also contain waste plastics, glass and tyre rubber without impacting performance.
Due to it’s inherent versatility Nu-Rock engineered rock can also be applied to the manufacture of green road surface materials that do not involve the use of highly toxic bitumen. Nu-Rock ‘engineered rock’ locks up all the heavy metals and even radio-active elements found in some waste streams. Producing greener and more durable roads by using Nu-Rock technology to recycle large volumes of industrial and domestic waste materials is an important part of Nu-Rock’s global vision.
