Early OH&S indications positive for use of Crumb Rubber Modified Binder in Open Graded Asphalt
Crumbed rubber has been in used in binders and sealant in road building internationally, since the 1960s and in Australia since the mid-70s. The increased use of crumbed rubber, at various stages of the road building process, offers not only significant improvements to road surface durability but also a valuable use for end-of-life tyre-derived product.
In recent months TSA has launched further public awareness advertising to draw attention to the size of the challenge of dealing with Australia’s annual supply of end-of-life tyres. The arresting images of piles of tyres superimposed onto iconic Australian cityscapes have featured in in national newspapers, targeted print publications and through an online digital campaign.
TSA has recently produced a new video that outlines why the organisation was formed, who supports it and what it aims to achieve. It also outlines how consumers, fleet operators and members of the public can get involved. Feel free to share the video with your contacts. If you are already TSA accredited this new video will help explain the value you are helping to create by being part of the important effort to turn an environmental challenge into an opportunity for new, green, jobs.
