This NBS reduces absorption and retention of heat on pavement surfaces. Cool pavements with a high albedo (solar reflectance) will absorb less energy creating a cooler surface temperature and cooler subsurface
This NBS can be used at roads, platforms, pavement around buildings, parking areas etc. It can be easily replaced with any other pavement material when necessary.
The period of recovery of the initial economic investment of the NBS is between 0 and 5 years.
