Reduced Plant Emissions
The warm mix production process significantly reduces emissions both in and around the production plant.
Warm mix emits 10-15% less greenhouse gasses over traditional processes while reducing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) up to 50%. Cooler mixes help improve the environment at the job-site as well.
Studies show emissions may be decreased by a factor of 2 for every 50° F in temperature; warm mixes reduce emissions by as much as 30 -50%. This translates directly into an improved air-quality for your workers and the public. Overall, warm mix reduces both heat and emissions, ensuring a higher level of comfort for your workers and an improved construction environment.
Lower production temperatures result in binders that are less aged and less susceptible to low temperature cracking, all of which contribute to improved service life, greater durability, and a richer, darker look to your job.
Reduced temperatures also afford longer hauls. Paving in colder weather is now a possibility with warm mix. As a whole, warm mix provides new flexibility- longer hauls, night-work, and cooler weather- all the while maintaining and improving upon pavement performance.
Warm mix’s reduced binder aging enhances and facilitates recycling. Using Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) as a component, warm mixes embrace recycling. Warm mix provides your project the eligibility to earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits for Recycled Content from the U.S. Green Building Council.
