How Global Emissionairy is reducing the carbon footprint of the paving industry
Paving the Way to Sustainable Infrastructure: The Global Emissionairy Initiative
March 6, 2024 | 2mins read

Global Emissionairy focuses on revolutionizing the paving industry by introducing sustainable practices that significantly cut down on carbon emissions. The core of their approach lies in partnering with pavement contractors to implement environmentally friendly techniques such as cold in place recycling (CIR), cold central plant recycling (CCPR), and full depth reclamation (FDR). These techniques utilize reclaimed aggregate pavement (RAP), asphalt emulsions, and foam stabilized asphalt (FSAB or FSB), thereby reducing the reliance on virgin materials and minimizing waste.

What sets Global Emissionairy apart is its comprehensive approach to quantifying carbon emission reductions. Through a meticulous cradle-to-installation life cycle analysis (LCA), the organization evaluates the environmental impact of each paving project. This analysis is conducted using a Verra-approved methodology (VM0039), ensuring credibility and accuracy in assessing carbon emissions. Furthermore, the organization leverages its proprietary PaveNext app and patented process (US 10,870,953 B2) to streamline data collection and analysis, making the process efficient and accessible.

The culmination of these efforts results in the generation of verified carbon units (VCUs), commonly known as carbon credits. These VCUs represent the quantified reductions in carbon emissions achieved through sustainable paving practices. Importantly, these carbon credits can be sold on the voluntary carbon market, providing pavement organizations with tangible incentives to embrace sustainable initiatives.

By partnering with Global Emissionairy, pavement contractors not only contribute to environmental conservation but also benefit economically through the generation of carbon credits. This symbiotic relationship between sustainability and profitability underscores the transformative potential of adopting eco-friendly practices in the paving industry.

In conclusion, Global Emissionairy is spearheading a paradigm shift in the paving industry, demonstrating that sustainability and profitability can go hand in hand. Through its innovative approach and partnerships with pavement contractors, the organization is paving the way for a greener, more sustainable future.
