Environmental Pothole Repair: Your Solution for Meeting Green Targets
At OUTCO, we take pride in offering our clients more sustainable maintenance solutions, including environmentally friendly pothole repair.
Our Environmental Road Polymer Technology (ERPT) is the latest innovation in car park and environmental pothole repair, using patented Recycled Rubber Polymer Technology to repair potholes which achieves up to 95% less CO2 emissions in the process. This award-winning technology is already approved for use on UK highways and uses end-of-life tyres which are recycled and put back into damaged roads and car parks in a more cost-effectively, faster and more environmentally friendly manner than traditional methods.
The environmental impact of pothole repair
The average pothole or asphalt repair using traditional methods emits approximately 30kgs of CO2 per repair. The equivalent of incinerating more than 1.5 end-of-life tyres.
At the same time, the cost of not repairing asphalt damage greatly reduces the lifespan and exponentially increases the capital cost of the asset over its lifecycle.
As of July 16th 2006 old tyres cannot be landfilled, tyres take over 100 years to start to break down, causing untold damages to the environment, the EU Landfill Directive banned dumping used tyres across the whole of the union.

As the leaves begin to fall, businesses of every size are faced with the annual challenge of Leaf Clearance on their premises. Those red, brown and yellow tones of Autumn may look stunning and evoke dreamy thoughts of stirring family walks and mulled wine, but for business, falling leaves clog drains, leading to water damage and flooding, and accumulate on paths, car parks, and other areas, posing a slip and fall hazard. Fallen leaves also attract pests and block gutters
When it comes to slips and trips, some of the main causes of these accidents are from potholes and uneven surfaces, which is why pothole repair is essential.
