"Zero Carbon" Asphalt
Black asphalt covers 60% of city surfaces as a silent contributor to heat, smog and C02 from parking lots, airports, amusement parks, shopping malls and roadways. Green building can never be "zero carbon" until the asphalt portion of the project is addressed. EC "Cool Pavement" reduces surface heat by 30-50 degrees (F) on summer days, reducing smog and C02. It is a nano-engineered ultra high performance thin concrete proven roadworthy at 1/6" thickness. It is 4300+ psi, 100+ skid resistant, impervious to UV, non-delaminating, comes in beautiful colors, extends the service life of existing asphalt, and is easy to apply with no milling required.

100 Cities by 2012
Steven Chu "Changing surface colors in 100 of the world’s largest cities could save as much as 44 billion tons of carbon dioxide. This is equivalent to the rise in global carbon emissions anticipated by 2020."
