The article focuses on the benefits of pipe bursting and the approaches taken by the state and provincial government of the U.S. and Canada to promote lower carbon emissions before 2015. It discusses the advantages of trenchless technology by offering a utility construction method with a lower carbon footprint, particularly in the excavation and replacement of materials above the pipe zone. It suggests using trenchless technology to help governments in their efforts toward emission reduction.
