Innovative technologies of construction materials (Nano-concrete and Nano-asphalt)
West-East Group of Companies introduced an innovative technology for processing of industrial waste into modern new generation polymer materials from sulfur polymers (Nano-concrete™ (sulfur concrete) and Nano-asphalt™ (sulfur asphalt)). According to scientists, Nano-concrete in modern road construction can significantly improve the environmental situation in the country.
This development became the result of changes in Ukraine’s economy caused by the impact of Europe Green Deal Concept. The use of quality materials for the road surface corresponds to the basic components of the sustainable development concept.
Over the last 100 years, many industrial wastes with sulfur content accumulated in our industrial state. After the proclamation of Ukraine’s independence, all this waste was transferred to the balance sheets of enterprises for further disposal. Due to the lack of necessary equipment and other resources, disposal was not carried out properly, so waste continues to accumulate and its amount is constantly growing.
The innovative EcoNanoBuild project has become an effective response to today’s environmental, construction and economic challenges. It allows the creation of new construction materials and technologies in the field of building and road construction on the basis of hazardous sulfur waste. These projects allow not only to improve the Eco friendliness of roads, but also to save the budget allocated for construction. Thus, an innovative construction material technology called Nano-concrete and Nano-asphalt emerged.
According to the developments, the use of Nano-asphalt in road construction can be a great alternative to harmful bitumen-based asphalt. It is also characterized by high strength, hydrophobicity, thermoplasticity, frost resistance and more.
Nano-Liner Lab plans to launch new technologies in the production of construction materials at mobile asphalt concrete plants
Success of West-East Group of Companies:
- 7 patents.
- 3 Certificate of Conformity.
- State sanitary-epidemiological examination.
- Nano-Liner Lab – research laboratory equipment for the production of test samples of new formulations.
The use of Nano-concrete™ (sulfur concrete) and Nano-asphalt™ (sulfur asphalt) as a finishing material for road construction can be a new step towards improving the environmental situation in Ukraine and our planet.
