Carbon insetting through Carbon-Negative roads


Read on substack

Companies across all sectors are seeking innovative methods to mitigate their carbon footprint. One often overlooked aspect of a company's assets is its infrastructure, particularly roads. Roads are integral to the operational efficiency of various industries, including data centers, agricultural areas, mining operations, power plants, and warehouses. However, traditional road construction methods contribute significantly to carbon emissions, exacerbating the global climate crisis.

Our unique approach not only addresses the environmental impact of road construction but also offers a compelling solution for businesses to tackle their Scope 1-3 carbon footprint through carbon insetting.

Understanding Carbon Insetting

Carbon insetting involves integrating carbon reduction initiatives within a company’s own value chain, as opposed to external offsetting projects. By focusing on insetting, companies can directly reduce their emissions through innovative practices and technologies. Carbon Crusher's road rehabilitation method exemplifies carbon insetting, enabling companies to incorporate carbon-negative practices directly into their infrastructure projects.

The Carbon Crusher Advantage

Our process revolutionizes road construction by utilizing a large "Crusher" machine that tears up the old road to a depth of 35cm. We then employ a Biobinder—a by product of the paper industry—to re-bind the road, creating a more durable, stronger and sustainable solution. Notably, our roads are not just carbon neutral but carbon negative.

Carbon Negative Impact: The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Carbon Crusher validates a carbon sequestration of 4-5.7 KGs (8.8-12.5 lb) per 10 sqft of road built. Impressively, our carbon-negative roads store 51 tonnes of CO2 per mile. Moreover, our process further reduces your carbon footprint by an additional 100 tonnes per mile, totaling an astonishing 150 tonnes CO2 per mile of road. This dual benefit—carbon sequestration and emission reduction—positions Carbon Crusher at the forefront of sustainable infrastructure development.

Durability and Strength: Beyond the environmental benefits, our carbon-negative roads boast enhanced strength and durability. The innovative Biobinder and construction process ensure that the roads can withstand the test of time and usage, reducing the need for frequent repairs and further decreasing the carbon footprint associated with road maintenance.
