AggreBind Project Analysis

AggreBind Project Analysis: For most of the below listed installations contact details are not supplied.  There are confidentiality agreements in place with distributors and mandates of privacy with end-users, some being elected high officials and members of royalty.  Further, for the projects and installations in Africa, regimes, tribal leaders, mayors, names of municipalities, etc., have changed numerous times over the past 2 decades.

AggreBind is/was mainly sold through distributors, hence we do not know the end-users details.

South AfricaRustenberg1996Road50.32 km X 7 mtr wide X 150mm deep main road to a coal fired power
station serviced by 100+ heavy trucks running non-stop every day.
On site material was non-cohesive sand based with some angular stone.
After final compaction a bitumen/Aggregate wearing surface was
applied. This was then sealed with black AGB and the spraying was
extended onto the shoulders of the road to deflect surface water away
from the vulnerable edge of the road.
A cost analysis revealed a saving of 45% over traditional road building
Hazyview1996Road40.254klm X 5 mtr main access road to a hotel and game reserve.
Client requested a durable road that would be suitable for 4X4 vehicles
that was natural in appearance and environmentally friendly.
The site involved some steep inclines that were subjected to serious
erosion during the summer rainstorms.
A soil/sand 150mm deep layer was stabilised and the surface was
sealed with clear AGB to retain the soils natural color.

Ivory Coast2006Roads40.254klm X 4 mtrs private plantation road used for access and harvesting of
crops by 20 ton vehicles. Crushed nutshells were used as aggregate as no
stone was available at the site.
BotswanaOrapa1995Roads50.20Soil Stabilizing and surface sealing roads, ramps and parking areas used by
fully loaded 80+ tonne dump trucks.
Loading ramp60.20The ramp was 30 degrees and the dump trucks went up the ramp, turned
around to deposit their load into the crushing machine, and then came down
the ramp to go and collect another load.  This was a 24/7 operation.
No maintenance was required during the first 4 years despite the fact
that no wearing surface was installed.  They had previously used concrete
that had failed within 2 years.
The reason for using a higher dosage rate, ON THE RAMP ONLY, was because of
incline and the continuous use by 80 tonne dump trucks.  The mine runs
continually and the wanted to reduce road maintenance to a minimum.
The additional dosage added 150mm of AggreBind per sq mtr x 150mm deep.

United Kingdom2008/10Various30.20A number of private roads, horse walking trails, pathways, dust control,
decorative surface treatments and lay-buys  have been installed.
England is vigorously controlled by the cement and bitumen industries
and the regulated specifications for all major road works is specifically
designed around granular (non-stabilized) base layers.
We are slowly making progress based on the significant cost savings,
and the re-use of waste materials, that are available by using AggreBind.
