Global Road Technology creates products and processes that cut costs for industry, increases productivity and minimizes the need for maintenance, roads, hardstands and other infrastructure. Construction is impressively quick and roads are operational within a few hours of GRT’s road stabilization and dust control products being applied.
SAVING NATURAL AND NON- RENEWABLE RESOURCES
The need to import newly quarried materials is drastically reduced in the construction of GRT roads. GRT roads can utilise in-situ materials, meaning less reliance on quarried materials compared to conventional road building methods. Unsealed secondary roads treated with GRT soil stabilization and dust control products do not require constant water based dust suppression, saving vast amounts of such a precious commodity.
LONGEVITY AND STABILITY
GRT roads are more robust, resilient and flexible than conventional roads. They remain just as strong in wet, dry, hot and cold conditions and can accommodate movement, moisture and temperature that would damage other pavements or surface treatments. Extensive laboratory analysis is followed up with field-tests in the world’s harshest conditions, ensuring GRT roads survive through extreme temperatures and severe weather events.
PROTECTION OF CULTURAL HERITAGE
Quarrying for roads has negatively impacted many significant sites around the word. However, as GRT roads require little or no external materials in its construction, the need for quarries and mines is greatly reduced – significantly reducing the footprint of road and transport infrastructure. Not only does this protect areas of cultural significance but it also alleviates the pressure on the surrounding environment.
IMPROVED LOCAL AIR QUALITY
Fugitive dust’s impact on visibility is not its only safety hazard; it can also lead to respiratory problems. GRT roads however are practically dust free. Combined with reduced exhaust emissions due to less traffic movements associated with haulage of quarry material and water, GRT roads present immediate and long-term benefits for local communities.
