Our focus

 

Optimizing current products: because of constantly changing needs researchers, engineers and technicians are improving our products and manufacturing and placement techniques.

 

Designing new products and techniques: one of our research priorities at Colas is to anticipate the requirements of the market and propose solutions to the specific problems facing our clients, particularly those relating to local geographical issues, by satisfying performance requirements (reliability, durability, safety) and worksite constraints (weather conditions, construction rates).

 

The major aims of our research are to: 

 

  • reduce costs by recycling materials

  • streamline binder manufacturing processes

  • meet new road user needs

  • develop environmentally-friendly products
