Recycling Roadways for Carbon Emission Reductions – Global Emissionairy – U.S. Project #1
Price Per t-CO2e
Project#1 – California GE PRS –
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 #1 California GE PRS: Sustainable construction methods were utilized to reclaim 255 lane miles of roadways in California saving a verified 21,116 tons of CO2 from entering the environment. The road work was performed in the following locations with the corresponding emissions reductions in tCO2e.
