VEGECOL

The environment-friendly Colas solution

VEGECOL

Vegecol is an aesthetically pleasing clear asphalt mix with a carbon footprint that is at least 70 % lower than traditional clear asphalt.
It achieves this by using a predominantly plant-based binder – that stores biogenic carbon in its plant-based components, and by using a lower manufacturing temperature.
Vegecol does not require surface treatment to retain the aggregate’s natural color.
It produces aesthetically pleasing pavements, mainly for light-traffic pathways (pedestrian paths, cycling paths, etc.).
Vegecol is compatible with local aggregates that are adapted to the site’s needs, allowing it to seamlessly fit into the local environment and to uphold the site’s heritage: squares, architectural sites, alleyways, Natura 2000 sites, etc.
Vegecol is also available in a permeable version.
