Studies at MTU found that SafeLane Surface Overlay has traction characteristics better than asphalt and equal to concrete.
"It also offers economic advantages," notes Persichetti. "It can extend the life of roads and bridges by acting as a sealant to reduce the effects of chloride and water intrusion. There is a diminished need to send trucks out in inclement weather, which means call-outs and overtime can be managed more efficiently. And as total chemical use declines, there is less runoff into the local environment."

OilTrap ElectroPulse Water Treatment System
OilTrap Environmental introduces the ElectroPulse system designed for treatment of washwater generated from washing vehicles, equipment and stormwater run-off in the asphalt industry. The EP5-WR and EP10-WR are economically priced and easy to operate. Unit can process up to 200 gpm for treatment of stormwater run-off and treated water is of a quality that can be recycled or discharged to a sanitary sewer or surface water. The system uses electrocoagulation, an electrolytic-based technology for treatment of contaminated water economically and on-site. Packaged with on-board automation, the ElectroPulse system is fully automated, which dramatically reduces the cost and time of maintenance often associated with on-site water treatment systems. Also, there are no filters to clean or replace.
