NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The benefits of Ingevity’s Evotherm warm-mix asphalt technology during
hurricane season are being highlighted in a recently released video
about a key stretch of Florida’s eastern coast that was repaired in
record time after Hurricane Matthew.
The video shares the experience of Halifax Paving, an asphalt paving
contractor based in Flagler County, Florida, who completed the emergency
reconstruction of a 1.3-mile stretch along State Road A1A, a national
scenic byway, in just 14 days by using Ingevity’s Evotherm, winning them
a $1 million bonus from the Florida Department of Transportation.
Evotherm is an award-winning asphalt additive that speeds road
construction. By dropping paving temperatures, the process is more
environmentally friendly, can use more recycled materials and the
pavement meets specifications more consistently.
“We couldn’t have met Governor Scott’s deadline using anything but
Evotherm,” explained Fred Iannoti of Halifax Paving. “We quickly needed
an additive that was reliable, easy for our crews to work with, and met
the state’s specification. We now use Evotherm in every ton of asphalt
“We’ve been demonstrating the benefits of Evotherm on emergency and
natural disaster projects across the globe since the early 2000s,” said
Jonathan MacIver, director of Evotherm technologies at Ingevity. “We’re
proud to have played a role in recovery efforts after catastrophic
events in the U.S. like Hurricanes Sandy and Matthew, and also in China
following the historic Sichuan earthquake.”

season can be viewed here.
