Astec ReMix™ Cold Central Plant Recycling System: Revolutionizing Sustainable Road Construction

Astec Remix CCPR

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 14, 2024 – Astec Industries, a global leader in innovative road construction solutions, is proud to announce the release of its Astec ReMix™ Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR) System. This cutting-edge system is designed to address the industry's growing need for sustainable road construction practices by efficiently utilizing reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) stockpiles.

The Astec ReMix™ CCPR delivers a potent blend of power and flexibility. Boasting robust capacity, Astec ReMix™ CCPR reliably churns out 300 tons per hour. Its modular design means it can be configured to exact needs. This translates to reduced upfront costs and enhanced adaptability. It's built on decades of Astec expertise, producing reliable performance through its field-proven technology, including the pugmill, foaming system, and controls. And when it comes to maintenance, ReMix™ CCPR shines. Easy access means less downtime, more uptime, ensuring an operation maintains production.

Key Benefits of Astec ReMix™ CCPR:

Cold Recycling Technology: Astec ReMix™ CCPR employs cold recycling technology, a sustainable approach to road construction that minimizes the environmental impact. By reusing RAP materials and mixing them at ambient temperatures, the system significantly reduces the need for both virgin aggregate and energy for heating the mix. This conserves natural resources and lowers carbon emissions.

RAP Stockpile Utilization: One of the primary advantages of Astec ReMix™ CCPR is its ability to consume ever-growing RAP stockpiles effectively. With this system, road construction projects can contribute to the circular economy by incorporating recycled materials, thereby reducing the overall environmental footprint.

Modular Configurations: Unique among the available CCPR systems, the Astec ReMix™ system offers a range of modular configurations, providing flexibility to asphalt mixing operations. From highly portable setups suitable for changing locations to maximum production configurations capable of handling large-scale road construction, Astec ReMix™ CCPR provides producers with the options to meet diverse requirements.

Efficient and Cost-Effective: The Astec ReMix™ CCPR system is engineered for efficiency and cost-effectiveness. By maximizing the use of recycled materials, it not only reduces disposal costs associated with RAP but also minimizes the need for new aggregate production.

User-Friendly Interface: The Astec ReMix™ CCPR system features an intuitive user interface, making it easy for operators to monitor and control the asphalt recycling process. This user-friendly design enhances productivity and reduces the learning curve for operators.

Visitors to the 2024 World of Asphalt in Nashville, TN will have an opportunity to see and learn more about the Astec ReMix CCPR system in booth 1263.
