Warm mix asphalt technology facilitates production and placement of asphalt mix at lower temperatures than conventional hot mix. The equipment is also designed to control emissions by capturing dust and smoke at mix transfer points and redirecting back
to the burner to be incinerated.
Recycled asphalt pavement that is collected from asphalt breakouts and millings during road reconstruction typically goes to landfill. Aecon is recycling old asphalt and processing it to be reused in the production of hot mix. As a result, we are
reducing reliance on virgin bitumen oil produced from oil refineries and virgin aggregate from sand and gravel pits.
A depot on the site accepts breakout concrete and asphalt demolition rubble, which is processed for reuse and resale into road base, reducing the need for aggregates from non-renewable gravel pits.
