Neoloy ® Tough-Cells are revolutionizing sustainable road construction
Neoloy Tough Cells are the new standard in sustainable road construction and reinforcement
Do MORE with LESS – Neoloy Tough-Cells are an ideal sustainable road construction technique, offering high engineering value at low environmental and economic costs.
Sustainable Road Construction
Aiming to reduce carbon emissions and save natural resources, sustainable road construction means building durable and cost-effective roads. These withstand heavy traffic and loading over time while keeping the total lifecycle cost lower than conventional solutions.
Neoloy is an ideal sustainable road construction technique, offering high engineering value at low environmental and economic costs.
Neoloy confinement improves the performance of RAP and other recycled materials, while utilizing less bitumen and less aggregate.
In landscape architecture, transportation & civil engineering Neoloy Geocells achieve environmental objectives at a lower cost.
Neoloy® Tough-Cell Sustainable Solution
Neoloy is an innovative sustainable pavement solution for durable road infrastructure that minimizes environmental impacts, recycles materials and takes total lifetime costs into account.
Neoloy Tough-Cells reduce the amount of aggregate in road construction by improving the stiffness and strength of local but marginal soils and recycled materials. This lowers environmental impacts and the carbon footprint significantly. The results are greener construction, with very long-term durability (and reduced maintenance) for any road, rail or port infrastructure project. At the same time, Neoloy also improves pavement performance, lifespan and cost-effectiveness all at the same time
Why The Neoloy® Tough-Cell for Sustainable Road Construction
Neoloy Tough-Cells 3D mechanical confinement system improves the modulus of marginal infill materials Locally available, but poorly graded or partially cohesive marginal soils (e.g., sand) can be used for structural and support layers, as can recycled materials, such as RAP (reclaimed asphalt pavement) and RCA (recycled concrete aggregate). The validated Neoloy reinforcement factor (2.5-5x) also reduces pavement thickness up to 70%, thereby reducing the total amount of infill materials required. These two factors reduce quarrying, hauling, earthworks and soil replacement significantly to create sustainable infrastructure.
Proven Sustainable Solution
Neoloy Tough-Cell sustainability is substantiated in published studies (see Pokharel et al, 2016), which use quantifiable sustainability indicators to compare Neoloy with conventional road construction methods for access road projects. The Neoloy reinforced roads demonstrated:
- 30-60% less aggregate material
- 28-42% less total hauling
- 25-58% less CO2 emissions
