The environmental benefits of the Citywide North Melbourne Asphalt plant include:
Greenpave, an advanced new warm asphalt mix, is a climate sensitive alternative to traditional hot mix asphalt. Citywide North Melbourne Asphalt is proud to deliver a product to the Victorian market that is safer and has significantly less environmental impact than standard asphalt mixes.
The advanced production process at our Arden Street, North Melbourne asphalt plant produces asphalt with properties equal to traditional hot mix asphalt, while offering significant add on benefits. This is the future of asphalt in Australia.
The conventional hot mix asphalt process uses one grade of bitumen at approximately 170°C. Greenpave uses two binders at significantly lower temperatures (~110°C). Combined application of the binders results in bitumen with the same performance as standard hot mix.
A reduction in production temperatures and fumes deliver immediate safety benefits to workers and the surrounding inner city community.
Unlike regular hot mix asphalt, which is susceptible to weather conditions, Greenpave offers greater workability and therefore a longer construction season. It is subject to less oxidative hardening of binder leading to better fatigue performance over time. Greenpave asphalt can be paved in thicker layers than regular hot mix asphalt offering greater productivity, operational savings and a rapid return to traffic
