• Completely eco-friendly, natural based non-toxic formula.
• No special equipment required for application procedures.
Developed and proven through years of field testing ECOROADS® is non-caustic, non-corrosive, non-combustible and biodegradable, making it safe to store, transport and use.
As the world grows in population and becomes increasingly interconnected, infrastructure needs grow ever more. In developing countries, road networks have deteriorated and will require significant investments over the next several years. 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 and save up to 40% in road building cost.
For ecologically sensitive projects that seek environmentally safe product and processes to keep their projects green, ECOROADS® becomes an easy choice. ECOROADS® is a non-toxic, non-corrosive, natural multi-enzyme product — no polycarbons , plastics or oil are used.
ECOROADS® usage profile allows for the use of simple equipment and in-situ soil, incomparably reducing time, cost and environmental impact
Energy, oil, gas and infrastructure companies are in a constant battle of cost reduction. They continuously have to build and maintain construction sites for new projects and thousands miles of service or connection roads in remote areas all over the world.
By significantly reducing or eliminating the need for imported aggregate material, ECOROADS® with in-situ soil and simple equipment can save up to 40% on the cost of building a secondary roads or fixing construction site territory without hard topping.
The most typical road problems are cracks, pot holes, and rutting. Caused by conditions on the top layer, a strong sub-base can mitigate these problems by slowing and reducing their spread. ECOROADS® strengthens the road bed and actually grows stronger over time. This mitigates damage below the road surface and ultimately reduces maintenance costs significantly.
ECOROADS® can significantly reduce road maintenance costs by up to 60%.
With several years of testing on mining roads all over the world the results and performance, shown by ECOROADS® have been stunning.
ECOROADS® provides the best value for sustainably performing eco-friendly product, that creates roads with ability to handle up to 15 tons per axel, with resistance to the abrasive action of traffic and dust prevention, reducing building cost by up to 40%.
Forest roads provide the most important means of accessing forests for timber harvesting, recreation, and hiking. They should be placed and maintained with extreme care to prevent any possible negative impact on soil or ecological balance.
For ecologically sensitive projects, ECOROADS® as a non-toxic, non-corrosive, 100%natural product that becomes the only choice for keeping forests clean and healthy.
Regardless where and when a military initiative is to be conducted, ECOROADS® is perfectly suited to support any military tasks. Military operations may require fast building of undetectable roads, base camps, helicopter pads, and airstrips.
ECOROADS® can convert local soil to road or hard base within 72 hours with minimum equipment involved and without the need for importing other road building materials, which eliminates additional trucking outside of a controlled area.
Green energy projects in constant challenge for keeping territory in original nature conditions, reduce environmental footprint in a process of building the facility and saving cost during continuous maintenance of the infrastructure.
ECOROADS® as a non-toxic, non-corrosive, 100%natural product becomes the only choice for ecologically sensitive projects for keeping surrounding land and roads infrastructure sustainable and clean, while reducing the cost of building and maintenance up to 60%.
It is a world constant demand for cost-effective and environmentally safe dust suppressing solution for unpaved, gravel, agricultural, territorial or mining roads.
ECOROADS® is able to provide unparalleled dust control solution while being both, cost effective and environmentally safe. Its unique concentrated liquid composition easily mixed with water prior to its application and can be applied with standard water truck
Enzymes increase the compressive strength of soil. The enzyme acts as a catalyst to accelerate and strengthen road material bonding, creating a dense, more cohesive and stable soil. Enzymes also reduce the compaction effort and improve soil workability while lubricating the soil particles. This makes the soil easier to grade and allows the compactor to achieve targeted soil density with fewer passes.
Enzyme stabilization also:
• Increases soil density: helps reduce voids between soil particles by altering electro-chemical attraction in soil particles and releasing bound water. The result is a tighter, dryer, denser road foundation
• Lowers water permeability: Tighter soil configurations discourage the migration of water that normally occurs in the voids between particles. Greater resistance to water penetration deterioration.
• Is environmentally safe: Enzymes are natural, safe (organic) materials. These materials are non-toxic and will cause no harm or danger to humans, animals, fish or vegetation.
After compaction, the expansion-contraction ratio will be dependent upon the soil type (percentage of expansive clays) as well as the gradation range (distribution of particle sizes). Well-graded soil (ranging from -200 mesh to 1 inch) is ideal for road building. The -200 mesh fines should be approximately 20%. If the frost level extends below the level of the road, some heaving may occur. However, in the spring the road should settle back to is original elevation without severe damage. Proper road construction including shoulder drainage will minimize the effects of frost. Good engineering practices should be observed. Hot weather should not affect a road, other than dry dirt surfaces tend to be dusty under high wheel loading. ECOROADS® treated surfaces will reduce the amount of dust.
Use of the ECOROADS® allows constructing road bases quicker and less expensive than traditional methods. ECOROADS® multi-enzyme based formulation alters the properties of earth materials to increase the soil bearing characteristics by promoting a closer binding of soil particles. This reduces the tendency of the soil to expand after compaction and results in a strong, stable earth layer that resists water migration. ECOROADS® helps prevent pot holes, increase wheel load strength, resist moisture and prevent frost heaving. Roads made with ECOROADS® last longer with less maintenance, saving time and money.
Road constructed with soil mix containing a high clay contact will exhibit slippery surfaces when wet. It is necessary to use as much aggregate as possible to increase overall strength of the road and increase traction in wet conditions. In many applications, surface treatment is applied as part of the overall design. This provides a wearing surface for traction, moisture protection, and greater overall strength. Cost and availability of materials are the primary factors affecting the type of surface treatment. ECOROADS® is used to stabilize the road and a thin "chip seal" is placed over the surface, the road can last several years without any significant maintenance.
ECOROADS® treated soils achieve their greatest strength during the 3-4 months period after compaction. Bonding of the soil particles takes place in the presence of moisture and compactive force. This condition will last as long as the material resists external forces. Heavy wheel loads, water, freeze-thaw cycles ultimately have an effect on all roads. ECOROADS® treated soils resists these forces due to the bonded, high density of the road material. The road will resist the detrimental effects of erosion and mechanical forces.
Note that when the clay fines (minus 200 mesh) exceed 25% or are highly expansive, some surface cracking will occur. Generally the cracks are superficial, often filling in with road particles during normal traffic use. This condition is often referred to as “Alligator Cracking” and does not significantly affect the stability of the road base. Rain or other moisture will moderately swell the clay fines and the cracks will close. If the clay material is highly expansive, then the amount of fines should be kept low to reduce the amount of cracking. Prior to placement of any surface material, ECOROADS® treated soil should be lightly sprayed with a dilute solution of water and ECOROADS® to assist in the bonding of the new surface material (i.e. asphalt) to the road base. Moisture will close many of the cracks.
