Emerald Cities™ Solar Reflective "Cool Pavement Coatings" and "Cool Slurry Seal" reduce surface heat of asphalt 20-40˚(F) and reduce CO2 during peak heat. These energy efficient nano-coatings can protect and reclaim deteriorating asphalt from the effects of thermal heat, UV radiation degradation and water penetration, which are the major reasons of asphalt delamination leading to breakdown.
Emerald Cities™ is in a public-private partnership with DOE/ Lawrence Berkeley National Labs promoting "Cool Pavement" coatings designed for cooling, repair and maintenance of parking lots, cross walks, school yards and public surfaces. Emerald Cities™ cool coatings save 3o% on parking lot lighting, kWh on adjacent buildings, generates LEED points and Emerald Cities Carbon Offset Rebates. Cool Pavement can transform an ordinary hot asphalt surface into a cool and beautiful architectural design statement.
