TonerPave™ is a new asphalt, with high recycled content and reduced carbon footprint. TonerPave was developed by Downer and Melbourne company Close the Loop and is the result of a shared culture of innovation and a genuine desire to reduce the companies’ carbon footprint. Downer is one of Australia’s largest, most progressive infrastructure companies, a top tier producer of asphalt and builder of roads. TonerPave is part of a new range of asphalt products supplied by Downer under its ‘Low CO2 Asphalt’ banner.

The key ingredient of TonerPave is MTP (Modified Toner Polymer), which has been developed over many years by Close the Loop® (CtL) and is a prime example of industrial ecology in action. CtL is one of the world’s leading resource recovery companies, with expertise in end of life (EoL) management services for imaging supplies.

CtL and Downer have formed an exclusive partnership to bring TonerPave to market. TonerPave asphalt has been laid by numerous Melbourne councils and we are in the process of qualifying mix designs in all other states. New formulations of TonerPave including the use of crumb rubber from recycled car and truck tyres, and waste acrylic paint are under development now for future release.
