Ecoroads Building Sustainable Roads to the Future


Road Building

Decreasing the Costs of Infrastructure Projects

Yellow Hard Hat

Billions are spent each year on new road construction and maintenance. As the world economy falters, government leaders and developers will look to cost- saving technologies as a primary remedy. ECOroads provides a needed solution.

In the United States
Federal, state, municipal and county budgets are stretched to their limits, and road projects across 26 states are on hold, yet much of our country’s infrastructure is in disrepair. With the monies being released to states through President Obama’s economic plan, coupled with his jobs program, using ECOroads will allow for a greater number of projects to be green lit, with significant cost savings, resulting in more durable, longer lasting roads being built.

Around the World
As the world grows in population and becomes increasingly interconnected, infrastructure needs grows ever more important. In developing countries, road networks have deteriorated and will require significant investments over the next several years. And many countries have a strong need to build out their transportation networks to connect growing cities, ports and villages. ECOroads helps accomplish this cost-effectively.

Reducing Soil Stabilization Costs
With soil stabilization constituting 40% – 60% of total construction costs, this becomes an obvious area to examine. By using in situ soil, which eliminates trucking in material, ECOroads Soil Stabilizer decreases the cost of road construction by 40%. ECOroads increases the strength, stability and durability of roads and outperforms other stabilization techniques on cost.

Decreases Road Maintenance Costs
Strength of the road sub-base layer is what prevents road cracking. ECOroads’ natural formula hardens the sub-base to prevent cracking. This means less repairs and savings in excess of 50% on road maintenance costs.

And because ECOroads in enzyme-based, it does not add any harmful effects to the soil. With environmental sensitivity, growing as a differentiator, ECOroads will help raise the environmental and safety profile your road.
