Michelin contributing to UAE ‘rubber asphalt’ project

Michelin is partnering with the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Infrastructure Development on a pilot project to pave roads with a ‘rubber asphalt’ produced from a mixture of concrete and rubber recycled from end of life tyres. The Ministry announced yesterday that a two-month trial of the new mixture will begin next week.

“The team will try a mix of asphalt and recycled rubber in paving the road and, based on the result, the same mixture might be used on other Infrastructure projects,” said Aisha Al Midfaa, assistant undersecretary for the Ministry’s planning sector. “Using this green technology for environment-friendly roads will result in a decrease in waste, harmful carbon emissions and noise pollution.”
