About ecoPals

The Berlin-based start-up ecopals is dedicated to developing sustainable solutions for a more
resource-efficient road construction industry. In cooperation with the Fraunhofer ICT and the
University of Kassel, this has resulted in a first product that has already proven itself on several pilot
roads: EcoFlakes are an asphalt additive made from non-recyclable plastics that can no longer be
used elsewhere. They offer an economical alternative to newly produced polymer additives and
improve the performance properties of the asphalt. Independent material tests ensure that the
composition of the additive remains constant and that it is free of emissions and pollutants. Most
importantly, regional production can reduce the asphalt's carbon footprint by up to 30%. ecopals is
thus focusing on innovation by linking existing competencies in science, road construction and
recycling.

ecopals secures seven-figure funding from High-Tech Gründerfonds and Fraunhofer Technologie-Transfer Fonds to make road construction more sustainable

Berlin, 8 September 2022 – In cooperation with the Fraunhofer ICT and the University of Kassel, ecopals has developed an asphalt additive made from non-recyclable plastics that increases the service life of roads, reduces their carbon footprint, and presents a new recycling option for waste plastics. With the successful seed financing from High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and existing investor Fraunhofer Technologie-Transfer Fonds (FTTF), ecopals is aiming to lift the product into a wide
