Carbon Negative Permeable Pavement Systems (CNPPS) offers Carbon Negative solution for hard surfaces like pavements and road networks. The company uses secondary aggregates, waste products and carbon-negative materials in its pavement systems which absorb more carbon in the manufacturing process than the carbon emitted per square meter by traditional carbon-intensive road construction methods. CNPPS's products are also permeable and can reduce flooding caused by rainwater run-off, thereby improving road safety. The company argues that its products are an estimated 5-8% less expensive than the currently used processes, having the potential to lessen the infrastructure budgets of the UK government. CNPPS requires initial funding to carry out a trial of its system by the Highways of England.  The company will use the investment funds to trial, accredit, CE mark and market CNPPS, and generate buyer interest in its products.
