Sustainability with Asphalt
Colorbiotics entered the asphalt industry with a soybean oil-derived science that was inspired by the fields surrounding the company’s headquarters in Ames, Iowa. Their team has continued to refine and perfect applications of that science to create solutions that are sustainable in both design and impact.
Today, the lineup of Colorbiotics asphalt solutions includes additives that increase the use of RAP, treatments that extend the service life of aging pavements and a soybean-based polymer that reduces dependence on petroleum oil. Thanks to the soybean oil-derived science behind those solutions, their entire lineup has received official approval and certification from the United States Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred Program.
To qualify for this program, products must be primarily composed of biological matter, a criterion verified by independent laboratories. Test results have revealed that two solutions from Colorbiotics consist of an impressive 96% bio-based content, while another boasts a 100% bio-based composition.
Across industries, Colorbiotics sources and formulates their products with the environment in mind. In recent years, the company has also engineered advancements in coloring equipment to cut down on material waste and built their own dedicated facility for the recycling of plastic totes.
