Porous Pave reached an environmental milestone when it manufactured and installed a total of 6 million pounds of permeable paving materials made from the recycled rubber of 200,000 tires. The company manufactures porous, durable, and flexible surfacing material made from recycled rubber, aggregate, and a binder to produce ¼-inch nominal size rubber chips. The surfacing is engineered with 29 percent void space, so water permeates down into a compacted aggregate base before slowly fi ltering into the ground. The pavers can be used in driveways, sidewalks, patios, pool surrounds, and terraces, and can be installed on slopes up to 30 degrees.
