A totally green project

For the refurbishment of a 2.1 km road linking Les Salines and Sainte-Anne performed for the Département of Martinique, Colas Martinique opted to carry out a completely “green” project. No fewer than three innovative techniques were involved:

  • Cold in-place recycling of the pavement with NOVACOL HPE and plant-based Vegecol binder
  • Application of an ultra-thin surface using ECF 0/6 micro-surfacing with plant-based Vegecol binder
  • Road markings with OSTREA thermoplastic coating produced from crushed oyster shells, pine resin and vegetable oils
