INNOVATION

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

In order to offer a competitive service adequate to the requirements of the current market, Pavasal integrates innovation in both the research and development of new products and services and in management processes.

PROPRIETARY DEPARTMENT

Pavasal has a proprietary innovation department which has led the Company to become a sector benchmark due to its advances in roads and paving.

PERMANENT PROCESS

In these fields of activity, R&D&i is understood to be a permanent process, particularly in relation to paving technology and new products, and to the manufacturing and commissioning processes of bituminous products (emulsions, cold and hot set agglomerates).

POSIMIX PROJECT

The objective of the project is to develop a technological solution which allows the recovery of the Posidonia oceanica from beach cleaning operations using asphalt mixtures. It is a project executed in cooperation with the company NUEVAS TECNOLOGÍAS FORESTALES, S.L., endorsed by the IVACE (Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness) under the Financial Instruments for R&D in Cooperation programme. This project is 50% co-financed by the FEDER Funds under the FEDER Operating Programme of the Autonomous Region of Valencia 2014-2020.

THERMAL ASPHALT

The main objective of the project is the obtainment of new asphalt mixtures that counteract the effects of the thermal variations that current mixtures can suffer and which have better or identical technical characteristics than current mixtures but at a lower environmental cost. In order to achieve this objective, a type of materials called Phase Change Materials (PCMs) will be used in tread mixtures, using various at different temperature intervals to obtain different types of materials depending on their field of application.

In order to carry out this project, PAVASAL will be assisted by the Technological Institute for Construction (AIDICO).

MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY EFFECTIVE SELF-HEALING BITUMINOUS MIXTURES (ECOASPHALT) GREEN WARM ASPHALT

The main objective of the project is the development of the cold set agglomerate manufacturing and commissioning techniques to achieve mixtures with better technical characteristics than current mixtures, which can be used in similar situations to hot mixtures, with a lower cost of resources and energy consumption.

In order to achieve said objective, the aim is to add a cold mixture of those described in current regulations, a powdered additive composed of a set of materials mixed in certain proportions we call “Ecoasphalt”.
