Ophen Ingenieurs worked with Polyciviel and Oosterhof Holman to make the 60 metre test road
At the Zernike Campus in Groningen 60 meters of special asphalt has recently been installed that can absorb carbon dioxide. The innovative asphalt, partly developed on the Campus itself, can remove about 20 tons of CO2 per year.
The special asphalt, which is made with olivine (also known as dunite, and apparently very CO2-absorbant), has been applied on a road near the climate testing ground on the Campus, reports the GIC.
The project is a collaboration between the company Polyciviel in Leek, contractor Oosterhof Holman and Ophen Ingenieurs.
