Broken asphalt recycling is profitable and it also protects the environment. Recent machine tests conducted by recyclers showed that Rockster ‘s technology is ideal for recycling old asphalt.
A well-known Austrian asphalt mixing plant operator recently supplied Rockster with real value calculations which are definitely impressive. Even with addition of only 10 % recycled asphalt the ROI of a Rockster R900 Impact crusher with screen box RS86 and return belt RB75 would slightly more than six months. Where formulations allow, it is possible to add up to 25% of recycled asphalt as a cold addition. That scenario, the ROI theoretically could be less than 4 months. Their calculations also revealed the bitumen savings. When using 25% recycled asphalt, 1,200 tons of bitumen can be saved over the same period. The fact that this recycling process also helps to protect the environment, is undoubtedly an expedient side effect. More importantly, by recycling the broken asphalt, the companies can realize additional earnings and save landfill costs. [Read more…]
