  • 1. PLANT-BASED BINDER Sequoia Natural footprint ®
  • 2. Sequoia® SUSTAINABLE SURFACINGS INSPIRED BY NATURE To design roads and paths using renewable materials that protect the environment, Eurovia has developed a new process: the Sequoia® plant-based binder. This plant-based binder replaces conventional bitumen and can therefore be adapted to a wide range of decorative and qualitative applications. Surfacings of this type can improve the safety and aesthetics of a variety of structures as well as enhance user comfort by making shared spaces easier to distinguish and recognise. key BeneFits S urfacings that are perfectly blended into their environment E nvironmentally-friendly, recyclable mixes The plant-based binder is part of Eurovia’s ongoing endeavour to achieve its sustainable development objectives by offering an effective alternative to the usual petroleum-based products, while providing surfacings that blend naturally into our environment. key figures A binder composed of at least 95% renewable, primarily non-food plant-based materials Ready-to-use binder A wide variety of colours and hues E nhanced aesthetic quality of natural materials Mix production temperature reduced by about 30°C
  • 3. A PLANT-BASED FOOTPRINT FOR BETTER ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE Sequoia® plant-based binder is colourless, so that it is possible to make the most of the aggregates with which it is used to create surfacings that blend perfectly into every setting, from city-centre squares to forest bicycle paths. Sequoia® plant-based binder is made of renewable, primarily non-food plant-based resources. It is produced in a special factory and delivered to mixing plants ready-to-use. The Sequoia® binder can also be used in Eurovia asphaltic concretes and in cold techniques (surface dressings and microsurfacings). Coating temperature can be reduced, in line with the Group’s environmental policy, to cut greenhouse gas emissions and generate energy savings. Plant-based binders are recyclable. PUTTING COLOUR in our life! Translucent when applied as a thin film, plant-based binder brings out the natural colours of aggregates. Where required, the addition of selected pigments can provide a wide range of colours, giving the binder many quality of life and safety applications, in both urban and rural areas: oads and car parks reserved for cars r idewalks s splanades e icycle paths b laygrounds p edestrian walkways, etc. p
  • 4. Naturally effective flexible utilisation durable adhesion The studies that resulted in the formulation of the Sequoia® plant-based binder were carried out with the goal of replacing petroleum-derived bitumen in all light pavement applications. The plant-based binder has very good adhesion properties when combined with a large number of aggregates, ensuring durable surfacing properties. In parallel, constituents were selected to ensure that the binder could be emulsified and used in microsurfacings and surface dressings. The origin of the aggregates, their colour and grading, the grade of plant-based binder and the mix formula are defined in accordance with the loadings to which the surfacing will be subjected. Sequoia® is a registered trademark. - January 2011 - 500 copies – Photos: Eurovia photo library This binder will no doubt prove to be a widespread alternative going forward.
