Purchase of a mobile plant that can mix crumb rubber asphalt for spray seal projects that cannot be feasibly serviced by fixed plants. This will open the market so Downer EDI can supply more regional areas. One of the benefits of a mobile crumb rubber blending solution is that it can be quickly and effectively moved to demand points, providing top quality, consistent product to consumers nation-wide; particularly helpful in regional and remote areas outside the reach of traditional fixed plants.
Through the provision of high-quality product to a broader range of consumers, the project is expected to consume over 2,500 tonnes of high-quality rubber per year over an estimated 10-year lifecycle period of the plant.
