Self-regenerating rubber pavement is an invention to make pavements from old rubber tires, renewing itself through water absorption. While others have created pavements that restore themselves through bacteria or are made from rubber tires, combining the two approaches is unique. The regeneration is due to a putty that is created when rubber and additives are mixed. When the putty is in contact with water, it forms calcium silicates, one of the components of the regeneration and physical-chemical improvement of the pavement.
It is made from rubber tires, but the production method is not published.
