Construction Industry News Magazine, the online publication focused on the latest projects and developments within the UK and Ireland, features the award-winning NonCrete Bio-Polymer bollard by TMP Ltd.
Milestone Infrastructure, a part of M Group Services’ Transport Division, and Hampshire County Council are proud to have won a second International Green Apple Environment Award.
The award has been presented to Hampshire Highways, a partnership between Milestone and Hampshire County Council, for its trial of bio-polymer bollards, replacing concrete versions.
The bio-polymer product is derived from sugar cane, weighs around 4kgs and can be easily transported, lifted and fitted into place.
Thanks to the ability of sugar cane to absorb CO2 as it grows, the bio-polymer bollards generate a negative -1.0 kgCO2e/kg, compared to their 8.6kgCO2e/kg concrete counterparts.
Simon Watson, Business Director for Milestone Infrastructure, said: “We are extremely proud this initiative has won an internationally recognised award.
“This would not have been possible without the support of Hampshire County Council who consistently back our drive for improvement in key areas. We are continuing to work with TMP Solutions on other innovative highways products which will assist us in the drive towards net-zero.”
