Mixed at lower temperatures, Duraclime™ reduces emissions, fuel consumption, smoke, and odors during the manufacturing process. This improves the comfort, safety, and environment for workers during construction operations. Residents in local communities and the traveling public notice the improved air quality near asphalt plants and paving sites.
The use of Duraclime™ can reduce the carbon footprint of a plant by 10 to 20 percent. With widespread implementation at all asphalt plants in North America, this reduction would be equivalent to removing the emissions from 200,000 to 500,000 cars a year.
