THE RECYCLE PLANT
ASPHALT PAVEMENT WASTE MANAGEMENT
The majority of existing asphalt and bituminous materials can be recycled. This brings financial benefits to businesses by reducing the need to purchase raw materials as well reducing the cost of waste transport and disposal. Recycling asphalt also reduces the need to use non-renewable resources such as oil and gravel, reduces waste going to landfill, as well as reducing the emissions created through asphalt processing plants.
With Universal Pave Waste Management Plant (WMP), producers can economically handle reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP). RAP is produced when old road surfaces are milled up to make room for new pavement. The reclaimed chunks are crushed and sized and replace virgin materials dollar for dollar in new mixes. Old shingles contain large amounts of fine aggregate and asphalt and are shredded before use. The processing plant is skid-mounted for easy erection and can process at least 200 tons of RAP and 50 tons of roofing shingles per hour.
