Further Proof Our Team Can Help Lessen Your Carbon Emissions

Road repairs don’t need to cost the planet. At Thermal Road Repairs, we can help you keep your road in working condition with our more eco-friendly solution. We take pride in decarbonising the asphalt repair industry and wanted to see just how green our solutions are.

Find out how our advanced technology proved its effectiveness in an experiment we conducted in 2023.

The Test

In February, we visited Lane Green Road in Codsall, Staffordshire. This was to be the place where our experiment would take place, as part of a road repair project. In partnership with Asphalt IQ, we placed a tag on the repair to measure the results. 

Asphalt IQ is just one of our partner companies, committed to monitoring the sustainability and quality of our roads. We used their tag to provide results on the quality of our work, which we could then compare to conventional methods of pothole repairs.

The asphalt repair area was 20m x 2m x 40mm deep, with the distance to the closest Hot Mix asphalt plant being 30km away. This plant provides commonly used road repair solutions.

Our Technology

At Thermal Road Repairs, we use road repair technology that produces a homogenous repair with a seamless thermal bond. This will prevent and stop water ingress and failures, creating higher quality standards of roads. This solution can be used on any asphalt type, meaning there are no restrictions on the amount and types of roads we can fix with our technology. 

Noise pollution is also a worry when it comes to road repairs, but not with our technology. With no sawing or jackhammering, there is little noise emitted with our pothole repair solutions. Our efficient technology also means the job can be completed quickly, with little inconvenience to those who live locally. We use one self-contained vehicle, which results in limited impact on our roads and our environment.

The Results

The results were just as expected - the road maintenance equipment used by our team resulted in 100% excavated material savings, 85% imported material savings and 86% CO2 savings. This proves that our road repair technology is greener than conventional asphalt road repair solutions.
