The Sustainability of Asphalt Concrete in Modern Construction
In the current era, where sustainability is a growing concern, it’s essential that the construction and civil engineering industries adopt greener practices. One of the ways we can do this is through the use of asphalt concrete. But how exactly does asphalt concrete contribute to sustainable infrastructure? We explain it here.
Durability of Asphalt Concrete
Asphalt concrete is known for its durability. It can withstand extreme weather conditions and bear heavy loads, which means that roads and other infrastructures built with asphalt concrete don’t need to be replaced or repaired as frequently, if they were built on good bases with the appropriate materials indicated in the designs of each project.
Recyclability of Asphalt Concrete
One of the biggest advantages of asphalt concrete is that it is 100% recyclable. When an asphalt concrete road reaches the end of its life, it can be crushed and reused to build new roads. This reduces the need for new materials and minimizes the amount of waste going to landfills.
Efficient Resource Use at Premaco
At Premaco, we take pride in our ability to use resources efficiently in our asphalt concrete projects. We constantly work to optimize our energy consumption during the production process and have an anti-pollution system called Baghouse in our plant.
In conclusion, asphalt concrete is a sustainable construction material option that can help build greener infrastructure. At Premaco, we are committed to sustainable construction and are proud to contribute to a greener future through our work with asphalt concrete.
