Recycling Roadways for Carbon Emission Reductions – Global Emissionairy – U.S. Project #2
Price Per t-CO2e
Project#2 – Northeastern United States
Global Emissionary’s Verra Approved VM0039 methodology credits sustainable roadway construction with these key environmental factors in mind:
Reduced energy consumption: Eliminate the need for extensive heating of materials, as required in traditional hot mix asphalt methods. This significantly reduces energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions.
Preservation of natural resources: Reusing existing pavement materials reduces the demand for new aggregate and asphalt, thus preserving natural resources.
Minimization of waste: By recycling existing pavement materials on-site, minimizing the need for disposal in landfills and reducing the environmental impact of waste management.
Lower carbon footprint: Due to reduced energy consumption, preservation of natural resources, and minimized waste generation, recycling existing pavement results in a lower overall carbon footprint compared to conventional road construction methods.
Project #2 Northeastern United States: Sustainable construction methods were utilized to reclaim over 1,000 miles of roadways from New York to New England saving an estimated 150,000 tons of CO2 from entering the environment. The road work was performed in the following locations with the corresponding emissions reductions in tCO2e.
