Our circular economy projects

100% recyclable asphalts

Manufacturing raw materials to make recyclable asphalts

We are working to provide society with the best infrastructure, one that is safe and environmentally friendly. With circular economy, we apply our innovative spirit to the development of sustainable and circular solutions in the asphalt industry to make it more efficient and longer lasting.

Materials and technology at the service of our roads

In our facilities, we produce the raw materials necessary for manufacturing more sustainable asphalts, which last longer and are able to be recycled at the end of their useful life.

Thanks to the use of bitumens and emulsions containing rejuvenators, which we produce in our plants, we can recycle and reuse highway pavement that has become deteriorated by use and weather. In this way, we are able to reduce the quantity of asphalt waste that ends up in landfills by giving it several more lives.

Additionally, we are developing our own technology that will give roads "self healing" capabilities when its materials begin to show signs of damage, therefore increasing its useful life.

We are also working on initiatives with other industrial sectors (industrial symbiosis) like tire manufacturers. Through our own development techniques, we collaborate with these industries in evaluating and reusing its waste to produce asphalts, even improving the properties of conventional asphalts.

Among the benefits of these initiatives, we are able to:

  • Reduce waste sent to landfills. This way, we can take one step further toward our commitment to circular economy and to regulations within the European Commission's Green Deal.
  • Reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Reduce our water footprint.
  • Classification by key lines and value chain

    Our circular economy projects are aligned with the key lines of our strategy and are present in our entire value chain, from obtaining raw materials to commercializing products and services.
