Reconophalt™ – NSW

Downer’s ReconophaltTM is Australia’s first asphalt product containing high-recycled content derived from true waste streams that would otherwise be bound for landfill. Materials are sourced through Downer’s exclusive partnerships with Close the Loop, Repurpose It, Downer’s own detritus repurposing facilities, and other suppliers of recycled resources.

ReconophaltTM is suitable for any application where standard C170/C320 binder is specified, for underlying base layers and non-modified wearing course asphalt. It has even been successfully used in modified-binder A15e mixes. Pavement construction using Reconophalt is as per traditional methodologies, using standard paving equipment. Our mixes comply with AS2150 and standard state road authority specifications, while providing a marked increase in fatigue resistance for longer pavement life and superior resistance to deformation.

This environmental product declaration (EPD) provides a detailed account of the environmental impacts for Downer’s ReconophaltTM in New South Wales and is based on a cradle-to-grave Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in accordance with ISO 14025 and PCR Asphalt Mixtures. The declared unit for this EPD is 1 metric tonne of manufactured asphalt mixture which fulfils the specified quality criteria during the Reference Service Life (RSL) of 20 years.
