GSB-88® Sealer/Binder Emulsion from Salt Lake City, Utah-based Asphalt Systems, Inc.® (ASI) has been awarded the GreenCircle Certificate for its fourth consecutive year. GSB-88® is the only asphalt emulsion in the world to receive this environmental certification for sustainable pavement preservation excellence. GreenCircle is an internationally recognized third-party certification entity whose thorough evaluation process provides independent verification that sustainability claims related to an organization’s products and operations are honest, valid, and verified. In 2017, GreenCircle’s testing has determined once again that Gilsonite-based GSB-88® sealer/binder/rejuvenator emulsion is an economical, versatile, and environmentally friendly solution for improving and extending the lifespan of asphalt surfaces. One application of GSB-88® every five years can significantly extend the life of asphalt and help reduce global warming, when compared to reconstruction. In fact, when comparing the lifespan of a standard asphalt road without GSB-88® treatments and a road with GSB-88® treatments, the road with GSB-88® will reduce Global Warming 49.15%, reduce Acidification 48.44%, reduce Eutrophication 49.30%, reduce Ecotoxicity 35.63%, and reduce Smog 49.38%.
Gilsonite is a unique, naturally occurring resinous asphalt ore found in Utah that does not have to undergo an oil refining process. Gilsonite emulsions are non-flammable, non-carcinogenic and non-toxic. With very low VOC levels, ASI’s gilsonite-based asphalt preservation products are safe for the environment. As an aid to maintaining infrastructure, pavement preservation is both eco-friendly and socially responsible.
