This is the third and final part in this mini-series, we are going to discuss the sustainability element of the ES Roadliner and why is delivers more sustainable highway grade markings for the future.
With the release of the LineLazer ECO ES RoadLiner back in October 2021, the introduction of this innovation into the line marking industry was the first of its kind in the UK. Bringing an all-electric line marking machine that delivers sustainable highway performance lines.
There is a growing demand for carbon reduction, from central government contracts, through to regional construction companies and local distribution providers. Indeed, electric-powered plants and machinery are becoming a common sight. The only option was a fully electric unit, reducing both carbon output considerably and minimising noise at only 82 dcBs.
With the use of the ES RoadLiner operators can produce up to 90% less carbon output, which means its sustainability supports the central government's goal of Net Zero.
A recent white paper case study ‘Under Lining Emissions’ was carried out independently for Meon by the University of Alberta, Canada, drawing on industry insight, scientific research and product specification.
From this this white paper it was highlighted that emissions from cold applied systems have a much lower carbon impact of if used in conjunction with an electric lining machine, and electric van, at a rate of only 181kgCO2e / KM.
By using a cold applied line marking system, using battery powered equipment and a hybrid LCV, a further 32% reduction in emissions can be achieved by switching to a fully electric set up, which creates a more sustainable set up for line marking of the future.
By making the change to using the industry's first all-electric line marking machine, you would be capable of applying highway specification line markings, which is a 300% increase in durability when using a MMA product. In additional to a 60% increased retro-reflectivity compared to traditional methods and the ability to cut carbon output by up to 90%.
By reducing the carbon emissions from line marking activities shows a significant potential to achieve carbon reduction goals in the highways industry. If all UK A roads were line marked again using cold applied systems instead of thermoplastic systems up to 70,00 metric tonnes of carbon emissions would be avoided.
