In collaboration with Pearl Global, Austek have developed technologies to utilize tyre-derived fuel oil to power our asphalt production facility. We call this technology Zeroad. Instead of using traditional diesel fuel to dry our aggregates in the mixing drum, we employ Zeroad.
This means we save 1.6 million litres of Diesel per year! Our Zeroad technology repurposes 5 tyres for every tonne of asphalt produced at our facility. Tyres used for our Zeroad technology are sourced from local council waste facilities and local businesses ensuring that Zeroad- is the carbon freeway!
