Adhering to the Kyoto Protocol, many countries worldwide made a commitment to reduce CO2 emissions substantially by 2020.

Large part of the emissions worldwide come from the most ubiquitous part of human environment - roads. Cement, used in road construction, contributes 1 ton of CO2 per 1 ton of cement produced.

Road Industry is increasingly under pressure to reduce carbon footprint. At the same time, efficiency of industrial processes is at its highest. Reductions of CO2 emissions must come from new techniques of asphalt production, often using waste products as alternative input materials.

One of waste materials increasingly used for this purpose is lignite fly ash. The advantage of fly ash is that its characteristics make it suitable to substitute cement for production of concrete in substantial percentages, while itself it is a waste product, often dumped at a price.

A product Allcompound was developed on this basis. Like cement, it is a binder for concrete production. Concrete produced with Allcompound partly instead of cement satisfies same requirements of strength, flexibility, durability and frost resistance as concrete made exclusively with cement usage. Additionally, however, production of Allcompound is CO2-neutral as mostly it is a waste product. Additionally, Allcompound possesses superior qualities such as it does not shrink but rather expands while hardening; it requires less mechanical compaction; it can be applied under temperature conditions of minus/plus 30 degrees Celsius; due to higher flexibility, its durability is longer.

Additionally, utilization of Allcompound in production of concrete does not require modifications in the production process.
