ECOBit

ECOBIT™ Warm Mix – The New Asphalt Paving Solution
from All States Materials Group

  • Reduces greenhouse gases
  • Uses less energy in both manufacturing and application
  • Produces fewer odors and emissions during paving
  • It can incorporate more recycled asphalt pavement
  • Your ECOBIT™ green paving project could be eligible for LEED points from the
    Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI)
  • You can pave on your schedule because ECOBIT™ warm mix can be applied
    in colder temperatures

 

Now, More Than Ever, People Are Concerned About the Environment

ECOBIT™ warm mix asphalt is generating tremendous interest from environmentally conscious
homeowners and businesses that are looking for more ecologically friendly methods for paving
driveways, parking lots, and similar projects. While this green alternative is relatively new in
the U.S., it's durability and reliability has been proven in over ten years of use in Europe.

 

ECOBIT™ Warm Mix Asphalt is Cleaner to Produce

ECOBIT™ reduces energy costs because less fuel is needed to produce a ton of asphalt.
Asphalt plant stack emissions are also significantly reduced and fuel consumption drops by
11 to 30 percent when compared to traditional asphalt plants. Finally, when warm mix is
being used, the amount of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) can be increased, further
decreasing fuel consumption, emissions, and greenhouse gas production.

 

 

ECOBIT™ Uses Less Energy and
Produces Fewer Emissions During Paving

ECOBIT™ warm mix asphalt technology has been shown to reduce the temperatures at
which the asphalt pavement is mixed and placed on the road by 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
These cooler temperatures mean reduced fuel consumption, the production of fewer
greenhouse gases, and reduced worker fatigue during the paving process.

 

 

 

ECOBIT™ Warm Mix Asphalt is Just as Durable as Conventional Hot Mix Asphalt.

Lower production temperatures mean the binder may age less in the production process. This
means less thermal cracking and improved long-term durability.

Fewer Emissions And Lower Temperatures Mean Your Project can be
Completed on Schedule – Even When Air Quality is Low.

In certain parts of the country, contractors are not able to work when the air quality falls below certain
guidelines. Federal and regional air quality regulations already limit emissions in non-attainment1 areas. Warm
mix gives contractors in these (non-attainment) areas opportunities to produce asphalt and avoid problems
with emissions regulations. The result? Your project can be completed on schedule without adversely
affecting the environment.

 

Your Paving Project Is Less Dependent on the Weather

Warm mix asphalt paving can be done in colder weather, so your project's completion is less
dependent on the weather.

 

1. In United States environmental law, a non-attainment area is an area considered to have air quality worse than the National Ambient Air Quality Standards as defined in the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1970 (P.L. 91-604, Sec. 109). Non-attainment areas must have and implement a plan to meet the standard, or risk losing some forms of federal financial assistance. An area may be a non-attainment area for one pollutant and an attainment area for others.
