Bitumen Emulsion and Carbon Emissions

10 October 2018

Road Science is committed to a cleaner Aotearoa New Zealand, which is another reason why we promote the use of bitumen emulsion. Hot cutback bitumen produces double the amount of greenhouse gas throughout the lifecycle of the chip sealing process.

Take a look at this illustration to see why bitumen emulsion is so much better for our environment. Last year alone the use of Road Science emulsion had the same positive effect on carbon emissions as planting 675,000 trees.
