Sustainability with latest innovations

Lower CO₂ emissions

BOMAG e-PERFORMANCE product family. Zero emissions – top performance.
With its e-PERFORMANCE construction machines, BOMAG is making a future-oriented contribution to more resource-efficient work on construction sites. Battery-electric machines from BOMAG work with highly efficient, energy-saving and emission-free electric motors. Compared to combustion engines, significantly reduce noise levels on the construction site, protecting the health of both operators and local residents. At the same time, e-PERFORMANCE machines offer strong economic advantages. They are in no way inferior to conventionally powered machines regarding performance and quality. In terms of service and maintenance, they are even particularly economical and significantly reduce service and operating costs through their use. They are also a reliable answer to increasingly stringent exhaust regulations. The noise and emission limits stipulated in tenders can often only be met by the use of electric construction machinery. In its e-PERFORMANCE product development, BOMAG combines sophisticated technology with smart solutions for the future. Machines are now available for a wide range of applications: BP 10/36 e and BP 18/45 e electric vibratory plates. BW 100 AD e-5 and BW 120 AD e-5 tandem rollers.
BT 60 e tamper.


As a company committed to innovation and fostering beneficial change, Dynapac is helping play an important role in the transition to an emission-free future. Our Z.ERA program, helping accelerate our continual push towards an emission-free workplace in construction, will assist in leading the way with its first focus on inner-city work sites, mindful of the fact that, by 2025, many major cities around the world aim to ban diesel- or petrol-powered machines on construction worksites altogether.

The initial phase of the program has focused on offering a product portfolio that is optimally suited for inner-city environment applications such as smaller road assignments like bicycle lanes and repair works. Among the many benefits of alternative, energy-powered pavers compared to their diesel counterparts are reduced carbon footprints, more savings resulting from diminished operational costs, and less wear & tear due to fewer fluids and moving parts. Additionally, operator comfort is heightened with lower noise levels and no exhaust fumes.
At Dynapac, we believe this transformation starts with replacing combustion engine power packs with robust and reliable battery technology. Based on customer’s reliance on a full day’s worth of performance, and available technology, we began with machines designed for city and repair work which all had shorter operating times.


In any compaction job, finding the right balance of factors for the best results has always been a science in itself. SEISMIC is a unique and intelligent technology that automatically enables the roller to determine the optimum frequency for any compacted material.
At the heart of the system is an onboard machine control unit, as well as a next-generation compaction meter. This game-changing feature makes it possible for SEISMIC to sense the dynamic characteristics of the material and then calculate the optimum frequency required for the best compaction results. The entire process is achieved using an advanced data flow from the SEISMIC Compaction Meter to the onboard machine control unit, which regulates the machine’s hydraulics.
Another operational advantage is that SEISMIC technology gets rid of any uncertainties by automatically detecting the frequency of the soil characteristics. By working together with the soil, the SEISMIC feature automatically applies the correct amount of energy exactly where and when it´s required and can hydraulically change the drum frequency, every 0.2 seconds for maximum performance. And because the drum no longer randomly hits the soil, each job is given a new level of precision and efficiency with considerable time and cost-saving benefits.
Dynapac is introducing a new range of fixed frame rollers featuring SESIMIC technology and all new operator station. The range includes four models – CX8, CX9 as well as combi versions – CX8C & CX9C. Among the many features of the new Dynapac CX9 are its 9-ton classification, latest generation VI operating station, interface, electric system, and ECU software. Additionally, the Dynapac CX will come with a new style for forks, beams, and frames. A particularly special feature is the Seismic system for optimizing energy consumption and compaction effect.
At Dynapac we believe that the Seismic Asphalt approach is pivotal in minimising the use of fuel and this, in turn, makes a significant difference in reducing the CO2 emissions. As the energy fits exactly the need, there is less waste of energy.


SAE Cold Mix Kit for Hot mix Plants
The answer to customers’ growing need for the decarbonization of road construction jobs comes from the specialist of solutions, developed on a cold mix plant basis: SAE, a FAYAT Group Company.
In fact, SAE’s latest portfolio addition is a turnkey cold-mix kit for low-carbon cold-mix asphalt production in simple or double coating, that can be implemented on any hot-mix asphalt plant and that can be adapted to any existing automation system and, in turn, equipped with all necessary dosing systems for high-quality mix production.
SAE’s cold-mix kit for hot-mix plants is easy to implement on any existing facility of any manufacturer, as part of a retrofit project, or as part of a new project, thanks to its independent dosing systems for constituents and thanks to its state-of-the-art automation that can be adapted to any existing system or be operated in full autonomy.
The innovation indeed lies with the fact that SAE’s cold-mix kit is a full turnkey solution in combination with SAE products’ groundbreaking key features, such as cold-mix kit outputs performances of up to 200 tph in simple or double coating; recycling up to 100% material; CO2-free, gases-free, fumes-free cold-mix asphalt during production and application. In addition to reduced raw material requirements and transport, no drying and heating of aggregates or bitumen, containerized compact design with minimized footprint and low height, requiring minimal concrete foundations: the epitome of low emissions and energy saving.

In a time when everyone’s fast-changing habits and practices reflect global concerns for the environment, ecology and thirst for alternative solutions, SECMAIR, leader in road maintenance, takes a radical shift with confidence and adds to its range an equipment with very low CO₂ emissions, THE BOX, 100% electrical, is a low CO₂ emissions sprayer, or, better said, an electrified and thermal-optimized solution for road maintenance.
The BOX is an environmental-friendly yet efficient spraying tack coat and prime coat.
« THE BOX » relies on two key features.
The first is a reinforced isolation and suppression of thermal bridges, because, in terms of energy, what will not be wasted is, in the first place, all that’s not produced – this results in thermal optimization of the emulsion tank as well as the associated circuit. Thanks to some innovative heating means, the efficiency therefore rises to 95% instead of the usual 70%. Then, its «submerged» emulsion circuit offers lossless tank circulation and facilitates start-ups. Free of any hydraulic action, maintenance needs are reduced and exposure to leaks are annihilated, neutralizing environmental risks linked to hydraulic oils. No power is collected from the truck, increasing thus the energy efficiency.

The second consists in the machine’s electrification, impacting every part involved of the spraying process such as the emulsion pump, the regulation of the height of the spray bar, as
well as the control of its extensions. Electrification, in fact, allows more precise management of emulsion dosages, hence significantly reducing potential waste, while optimizing work quality on jobsites.
Available in two versions of « THE BOX »: a 100% electric version; a version with natural gas for a more powerful instant heating system. Both versions are efficient and environment respectful solution with very low CO₂ emissions that will stand out among the major players of the road construction industry.


Save & Reuse Materials

The TSX, available in stationary (TSX INCITY) and supermobile (TSX HIGHWAY) versions, is the result of many years of research and development from Ermont to provide its clients with a solution that is respectful of the environment and that can support the decarbonisation of road construction and maintenance jobs.
The TSX InCity (stationary version) is a continuous ecological asphalt plant, unique in the world, capable of recycling up to 70% of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) coming from road maintenance, easily, with just one drum, while ensuring environment respect and high-quality hot-mix-asphalt (HMA).
The TSX InCity features the patented TSX technology, composed of two Ermont patented processes, conceived to minimise the environmental impact of asphalt production: the DUOTHERM process, allowing for RAP drying and heating without damage by double thermal exchange with aggregates at MODERATE temperature AND gases at MODERATE temperature to protect the RAP binder and reduce emissions, in order to guarantee the high quality of the recycled HMA. And the ECOFIRE process, unique in the world, which allows for energy recovery from gases and ensures that the burner operates with regulated heated combustion air in order to optimize the combustion performance of the burner regardless of ambient temperature conditions while reducing energy consumption.

The TSX HIGHWAY (mobile version) goes even further to decarbonize road construction jobs and reduce as much as possible the different levels of greenhouse gases emissions thanks to:
Recycling: up to 70% and decrease of raw materials needed (bitumen and aggregates) and of associated CO₂ emissions (production and transportation), resources protection; Mobility: extreme mobility, able to be commissioned as close as possible to the job location, and thus decreasing HMA and raw materials transportation logistics and associated CO₂ emissions; Energy: technical solutions implemented on the TSX to achieve the lowest energy consumptions possible and thus decreasing CO₂ emissions accordingly.
Low height and low visual impact prove the TSX plants are ideal to integrate into the neighbouring environment; low emissions and noise nuisance guarantee comfort and respect of users and the surrounding areas; proving Ermont efforts to support customers in their quest towards eco-responsible road construction sites.


Marini EvoDryer is the latest Marini solution offering the customer the best available technology when it comes to introducing the Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) into the recycling ring while allowing that flexibility of action that would significantly help meeting the most different asphalt production market demands.
The limit of existing recycling rings is the fact that the RAP is inserted in a very hot area and, no matter the special “protecting flights”, it is really strained, the quality of the final asphalt being at risk, higher emissions being a consequence and bad odours around the jobsite a repercussion. The concept underlying Marini EvoDryer is the increase of the length of the dryer drum, the change of the position of the introduction of the RAP after the dryer flame and the modification of the internal paddles.
The prototype of the Evodryer drying cylinder was installed in 2019 and was tested for 3 years before his validation and before to start with the real marketing and sales phase. Since then it has been installed in 10 other construction sites with extremely positive results from the point of view of reliability, high percentages of RAP in use guaranteed (from 35% of the standard recycling ring, up to 40% with the Evodryer), reduced maintenance for internal cleaning of the dryer drum, high reduction in emissions and odours generated in the drying process (at least 50% in VOC and odour emissions compared to the use of traditional dryer drums).
The higher use of RAP material, the reduction of emissions and odours, the treatment of vapours which are also produced in the upper part of the mixing tower, guarantee the best environmental protection available in the industry and are a key milestone on the “net-zero” trajectory.
