CPB Contractors has marked an Australian first on the Logan Enhancement Project, using an innovative EME2 (Enrobé a Module Élevé Class 2) asphalt product that increases paving durability, despite requiring a lower volume of the product in comparison to regular asphalt.
Selected for its high strength and resistance attributes, more than 206,000 tonnes of the combined base and binder asphalt was applied to the Queensland roads project. The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) has since verified that this is the single largest commercial use of EME2 in Australia.
David Fox, CPB Contractors Group Sustainability Manager, considers the use of this new material as another example of CPB Contractors’ commitment to sourcing innovative and environmentally sustainable solutions for projects.
