The American road network is the largest of its size around the globe, spanning millions of miles in length and demanding perpetual maintenance and repair to accommodate the people who travel along systems like it every day.

Our roadways are primarily composed of materials like asphalt and concrete; and with millions of miles to maintain, these materials are often in high demand. So, where do road construction companies obtain asphalt to service something like the American road network? The answer: it’s commonly recycled.

The Impact of Crushing in Asphalt Production & Recycling

Following the advent of crushing equipment like portable impactors and screening plants, nowadays up to 100 percent of asphalt pavement can be recycled, often processed through these machines to be reintroduced into new batches of asphalt mix.

Crushing and screening technology are vital components in producing reclaimed asphalt product, or RAP, as these machines physically separate the asphalt bonds between the aggregate material and prepare it to be mixed with a smaller amount of liquid asphalt and virgin aggregates then if asphalt was being produced wholly from new materials.

After the new asphalt is produced, it can go on to be used in new road projects and other jobs that would require the material, completing an impressive chain of recycling and conserving important natural resources along the way.

Furthermore, over 80 million tons of asphalt pavement is reclaimed each year, according to an annual survey conducted by the National Asphalt Pavement Association, saving taxpayers an estimated $2.5 billion per year and millions of yards of landfill space.

Eagle Crusher engineers and manufactures a comprehensive portfolio of crushing and screening plants, like the MaxRAP® system, that are integral in the production of RAP.
