Environmentally conscientious, the installation of KBI Flexi®-Pave will consume 11,000 used scrap car and truck tires
TAMPA BAY, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 11, 2021 / Atlantic Power, and Infrastructure Corp. (OTC PINK:AWSL) is pleased to announce that its KBI Flexi ®-Pave has been specified for Atlanta's famous 'Belt-line' Walkway and Bicycle Path.
The Beltline has, over the past 5 years engaged in extensive testing of KB Industries Inc`s Flexi®-Pave and determined that the unique benefits of KBI Flexi ®-Pave improve Atlanta's Beltline. The installation of KBI Flexi ®-Pave will increase the width of the existing Asphalt Path by an average of 2 feet on either side on 33,000 feet of the Walkway and Bicycle Path. This will benefit the Beltline by reducing the amount of erosion that occurs following heavy storms, causing water to flow off the sides of the asphalt and eroding the subbase underneath the asphalt, subsequently causing costly failures and damage to the sides of the asphalt path.
The ability of KBI Flexi ®-Pave to allow 3,000 + gallons of water to pass through every square foot of KBI Flexi ®-Pave per hour reduces the possibility of storm water damage. In addition, KBI Flexi®-Pave naturally provides ‘Passive Nutrient Removal' as the stormwater flows through the KBI Flexi®-Pave into the aquifer, benefitting improved stormwater management and water quality.
The Beltline further determined the ‘non-cracking' capabilities of KBI Flexi ®-Pave will provide an added benefit to cyclists and walkers, who will be less likely to have accidents that are commonly associated with failing asphalt.
With the Beltline being renowned for its goal to be known as environmentally conscientious, the installation of KBI Flexi®-Pave will consume 11,000 used scrap car and truck tires from becoming hazardous waste in the manufacture of KBI Flexi®-Pave. Acknowledging that the manufacturing of KBI Flexi ®-Pave includes the use of recycled tire granule, aggregate, and a proprietary binding agent, resulting in a totally benign environmentally correct flexible porous paving solution. KBI Flexi®-Pave is one of the products from KBI's Scrap Tire Construction Products - Division (STCP)
Flexi-Pave® was developed by K.B. Industries, Inc a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlantic Power and Infrastructure Corp.
