Case study: Austek and Pearl Global - Carbonphalt

Transport South East Queensland (North)

Two Queensland based companies, Austek and Pearl Global, have developed a product that repurposes car tyres into asphalt for roads.

Carbonphalt creates a stronger, more durable and darker asphalt while reducing tyre waste, with one project reusing approximately 22,000 tyres to resurface King Street in Clontarf, in South East Queensland.

Carbonphalt shows how Queensland businesses are designing, making, using and managing products and resources in sustainable ways, and moving towards a more circular economy.
