We’re excited to introduce COLPISTE as one of the top 5 solutions submitted to our Call for Submissions for technology solutions to realise sustainable roads in emerging markets.
Developed in Africa by French company COLAS, COLPISTE makes it faster, more affordable, and more sustainable to construct rural roads in emerging markets. It does this with InfraTech that combines a soil stabilisation solution and a cold layer.
When applied to existing tracks in rural areas, COLPISTE creates a consistent and stable surface on which a thinner layer of asphalt can be applied to create all-weather, reliable, paved rural roads. Its other benefits include:
COLPISTE has already been used on nearly 100 km of rural road in Senegal, Africa. To learn more about it and see video from the application in Senegal, visit the case study below.
