Sustainable asphalt

Asphalts designed to improve sustainability across our road networks

More sustainable asphalts that help reduce carbon emissions, extend pavement life and reduce waste.


More sustainable highways maintenance starts with investing in smarter materials. Tarmac have developed a range of innovative asphalts that extend pavement life, reduce carbon emissions, eliminate waste and deliver a more sustainable approach to highway maintenance.

Tarmac’s industry leading ULTILOW warm mix asphalts reduce carbon emissions during manufacture and installation. Our rubber modified asphalts turn old tyres into new roads and footpaths while delivering, on average an 8% reduction on CO2 and reducing waste by incorporating the rubber from around 500 tyres per kilometre of road. While Ultipatch Sitemix, our award winning asphalt for mobile asphalt batch heaters helps to eliminate waste from highways maintenance activities.
