GRANT, Mich. - Oct. 3, 2017 - PRLog -- When Greenbuild convenes next month in Boston, Porous Pave, Inc. will mark another environmental milestone: surpassing ten million pounds of recycled rubber used in applications of its permeable paving material. An eco-friendly green building product made in the U.S.A., Porous Pave is a highly porous, durable and flexible paving material. The controlled shredding and processing of discarded tires produces the 1/8-1/4-inch, fine-cut chips of recycled rubber incorporated into Porous Pave.

Porous Pave installations retain storm water on site, decreasing runoff into storm drains and storm sewers. Porous Pave XL is the company's strongest and most durable formulation for hard-wearing permeable pavement. XL combines equal amounts of recycled rubber chips and aggregate mixed on site with a moisture-cured, liquid binder. For more impact-absorbing permeable surfacing, XLS is made with 100 percent rubber chips mixed with a softer binder.

"Porous Pave infiltrates much more stormwater than permeable pavers," said Andy Sykes, CLP, owner, Garrett Churchill, Inc. "The recycled rubber chips give it good traction and make it freeze- and frost heave-resistant." As the project designer and landscape contractor, Garrett Churchill selected Porous Pave for the permeable walkways and patio at the Gil Rosenthal Garden of Peace (Elkins Park, Pa.).

"In addition to permeability and walking surface comfort and safety, we required a strong paving material that can hold up against periodic flooding along the Charles River," said Horace Aikman, RLA, senior associate and director, construction technologies, CRJA-IBI Group Landscape Architects. "Porous Pave also has material quality and visual appeal appropriate for a premier Class A office park." As the landscape architecture firm for the project, CRJA-IBI selected Porous Pave for the Wellesley Office Park Walking Path (Wellesley, Mass.).

"We chose Porous Pave because it is an innovative green material, which while new to the Cape, offers proven permeability and demonstrated durability," said Kristen Andres, director of education and outreach, Association to Preserve Cape Cod (APCC). APCC selected Porous Pave for the permeable sidewalk and handicap parking pad at its Living Landscape Laboratory (Dennis, Mass.).

The Greenbuild conference and expo will be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC), Boston, Mass. Porous Pave, Inc. will exhibit at Greenbuild on November 8-9, 2017. Porous Pave will be located a booth #211.
