The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) welcomes E&B Paving as a partner in The Road Forward, an industry-wide vision for sustainable communities and commerce. This strategic partnership propels forward-thinking efforts to engage, educate, and empower the asphalt sector toward achieving the net zero carbon emission of asphalt pavements by 2050.

Founded in 1967 in Muncie, Ind., E&B Paving now operates 17 asphalt mix plants, serving DOT projects, residential, commercial, industrial, and aviation customers throughout Indiana and neighboring Kentucky and Ohio. E&B Paving has been a NAPA member since 1988.

E&B Paving’s services include construction, resurfacing, and milling. The company works with customers to embrace sustainable solutions, such as resurfacing rather than replacing and using warm-mix asphalt (WMA). E&B Paving’s certified lab technicians drive innovation, sustainability, and performance through expert asphalt mix design.

“We are excited to welcome E&B Paving on The Road Forward and the role they’ll play in advancing our shared vision in their region,” said NAPA President & CEO Audrey Copeland, PhD, PE, “because it takes all our voices, localized experience, and regional relationships to demonstrate the positive impact asphalt pavements have in reducing carbon emissions in our transportation network.”

The Road Forward brings together the entire U.S. asphalt community to conduct research, implementation, and ongoing education. The Road Forward Partners are NAPA members that actively support this work through financial contributions, leadership, and expertise.

New for 2024, NAPA is also offering opportunities for nonprofit organizations, such as likeminded associations, to support the industry-wide effort. Additionally, agencies are invited to join at no cost to bring their voices to this innovation lab. The new tiered program invites all stakeholders to the table to collectively propel the vision toward net zero. The enrollment period, which occurs annually, is open through August 30.
