According to local media reports, UAE’s Ministry of Infrastructure Development, in cooperation with French tyre maker Michelin, launched an experimental project that will use a mix of recycled rubber asphalt to build public roads. A specialist team will test a mixture of asphalt and recycled rubber to develop an asphalt mix, which can eventually be used for future road construction projects.

Additionally, the initiative is expected to reduce waste production and carbon emissions, through using recycled materials instead of traditional bitumen-based asphalt

Rubber asphalt is a concrete material mixed with rubber from recycled tyres. The initiative is a part of the Ministry’s efforts to achieve sustainability, promote innovation, encourage recycling and create a national green road network.
