Meon launches Project Highways Zero initiative

Meon is highlighting how carbon savings can be made across highway and transportation infrastructure through the launch of Project Highways Zero.

The project started in 2020 to highlight how carbon savings can be made across the whole of highways and transport infrastructure with respect to line marking and surface repairs.

Managing director Gary Spencer said: “At Meon, we’re heavily backing this campaign, due to our passion for delivering environmentally great surfaces. As an innovation leader in the industry, it’s important for us to make information easily accessible regarding the varying environmental benefits of products, application methods and machinery.”

A key milestone in the project up to now was the completion of the first independently verified white paper looking into line marking and its impact on carbon. This study showed that it’s possible to reduce net carbon consumption by up to 10 times (by over 1500 kilos of carbon per km) through the use of cold line marking materials and electric application equipment.

Added benefits include improved durability for cost savings and higher retained reflectivity for better safety for road users.

Project Highways Zero are running a series of short online presentations, discussion forums and events to highlight how carbon savings can be made with line marking and surface repairs.
