About the Yellowstone National Park Installation

Addressing the decaying trail infrastructure, over 14,000 sq.ft. of Flexi-Pave® have been laid by KBI around Old Faithful. These rubber granules are produced under KBI’s proprietary technology using recycled tires and other materials that returns rain and snow to the water basin without leaching pollutants into the ground water.   By replacing the broken asphalt with flexible porous paving - Flexi-Pave, thus allowing a positive aquifer recharge that would ultimately provide water through the fragile eco-system to Yellowstone's Geysers. This also reduced the physical contamination of the broken asphalt entering the geysers.

Management would like to provide special thanks to Michelin tires (who donated about $300,000 worth of tires to Yellowstone for the installation.

Commenting on the news, Chairman, CEO of AWSL Kevin Bagnall stated, “We are delighted to be featured in such a prestigious publication and to have our Flexi-Pave solution acknowledged and praised by the industry as a timely and environmentally friendly solution to the increasing ‘Storm Water Management Needs’ caused by Urbanization Growth.”

A bright future for Flexi-Pave
Engineers are becoming more aware of the need to protect the environment, aware of the need to return clean non polluted water to the aquifer, as a result they are specifying Flexi-Pave to help remedy the environmental problems that are being caused by traditional road and walkway surfacing materials. Our Flexi-Pave can be seen at Arlington National Cemetery NASA and the Smithsonian Institute to name but a few. The product utilizes one of the world’s most environmentally unfriendly products, ‘used tires’, by converting them into a product that is beneficial to the environment. Our technology is reducing the amount of CO2 by as much as 36.96 lbs per one sq. ft of Flexi-Pave produced verses discharging the CO2 into the atmosphere when used tires are burnt in the production of cement.    Flexi-Pave is now a proprietary product being included in specifications by engineers internationally.
