Will Demand For Green Paving Continue?

Back in 2012, according to Green Biz, there was a massive demand for green and renewable products and services. What had been smaller, more niche industries were booming as customers big and small demanded their products. It was impossible for suppliers to keep up with demand, and it seemed like everyone was trying to go green all at once.

Over the next five years, the supply of green products and services managed to increase. However, instead of slackening, the demand for these goods only seems to have gone up. In fact, even products which would have been considered niche in the past are now seeing an increased demand because of the benefits they offer.

Green paving is a product that has gained a great deal of visibility over the past few years, and has no small amount of interest. In short, this paving is riddled with tiny holes, which allows water to drain through it instead of pooling on top of it. The water passes through several layers of filtration to trap contaminants, and it is then returned to the local water table.

 

This pavement has been used for parking lots, driveways, garden paths, and other applications, and its ability to return water directly to the ground is appealing to those who want an ecologically friendly building material. While it has not become the standard, replacing more traditional forms of concrete and asphalt, interest in the pavement that doesn’t require an additional drainage solution doesn’t seem to have gone down. If anything, as technology advances, there is an increased interest in this material.
