World First UV Powered Pathway
LONDON, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Pro-Teq Surfacing UK Ltd, light the way with their innovative re-surfacing methodology demonstrating how STARPATH could help local authorities around the world recognise the potential savings in local and national government energy bills.
STARPATH could be an alternative to street lighting.
Pro-Teq Surfacing (UK) Ltd, developed and patented a world first for spraying a liquid based product in combination with either soft or hard media. This innovative pathway re-surfacing methodology called STARPATH is the result of an extensive period of chemical trials. Comprising a multitude of product samples, mix ratios and application techniques. STARPATH is currently being trialled in Christ's Pieces, a well-known park in the east side of the centre of Cambridge by Cambridge City Council.
This product is extremely cost effective to both install and maintain while its seamless surface may be applied to any existing surface, be it concrete, tarmac, timber or any hardstand substrate (solid base). The aggregate material absorbs and stores energy from ambient light (UV rays) during the day, then releases this energy at night allowing the particles to glow (see picture attached and link:

Pro-Teq Surfacing (UK) Ltd believes STARPATH has considerable environmental appeal beyond the obvious reduction in council bills. As a resurfacing technique, which does not require the existing surface to be removed, the Pro-Teq alternative has immediate advantages over those products offered by its competitors, including savings realised through carbon credits, reducing the council carbon footprint. It eliminates the substantial cost of removal and disposal of the existing surface, ultimately enhancing the 'green friendly' reputation of those organisations choosing to install Pro-Teq's products.
As outlined above, STARPATH effectively generates its own energy during the day while radically enhancing visibility at night, which assists pathway users. It is certainly a sustainable surface, perfect for cyclist and disabled access and has a high safety margin with its anti-slip properties.
Hamish Scott believes STARPATH is more than cost effective for councils, as councils around the country are currently turning off street-lighting at night to realise energy savings. STARPATH provides a viable alternative, which provides for safety at night, whilst also being cost effective.
