40,000 tonnes of 10mm down IBAA from Ballast Phoenix was specified for the M25 widening project.
BPL worked closely with the clients, Skanska and Balfour Beatty, the delivery partner and consulting engineers to ensure full compliance with specifications, environmental requirements and achieving a sustainable solution for the project.
IBAA is an extremely cost effective material when compared to Primary Aggregates and BPL is working towards a PAS 2050 compliant Carbon Footprint and will strive for Carbon Trust verification once the project is complete.
The aggregates produced are carbon neutral using data available from Europe and UK sources.
There are also advantages logistically when using IBAA due to the low density of the material, allowing for fewer vehicle movements as this gives volumetric advantages over primary materials.
