Asphalt is a valuable material for road infrastructure, but what happens when roads deteriorate or need replacement? Instead of removing, demolishing and discarding the old damaged road surface, we now have the technology to recycle it efficiently and sustainably with CAMSAMERICA shredders.
This innovative technology is revolutionizing the industry, allowing the recovery of high quality materials and helping to preserve natural resources while reducing waste.
The asphalt life cycle, from production to use and demolition, offers a valuable opportunity for recycling.
Over time, the asphalt tends to deteriorate, presenting cracks and holes that require repair and maintenance. In the past, this would have involved removing worn asphalt, generating huge amounts of waste in landfills, and producing a new road surface. However, today, thanks to technologies such as CAMSAMERICA shredders, the approach to building new road surfaces is radically changing.
CAMSAMERICA shredders represent the excellence of asphalt recycling technology. Their design highlights a cutting-edge approach that operates by exploiting the cutting effort, reducing consumption and overall environmental impact.
Using this innovative cutting technology, CAMS shredders are able to break up asphalt into high-quality fragments without compromising its key characteristics, and bringing the aggregate back to its original form. This means that the recycled asphalt retains its characteristics, allowing reuse in new road pavements without any loss of quality.
One of the advantages of using CAMSAMERICA shredders is the reduction of waste resulting from the demolition of worn road surface: instead of eliminating large quantities of material, It is now possible to recover and recycle the material we already have.
This not only reduces the environmental impact related to the extraction of new raw materials but also contributes significantly to the preservation of natural resources. Bitumen, a key component of asphalt, is a non-renewable resource, and every time we recycle asphalt we preserve this valuable resource.
CAMSAMERICA shredders offer a double advantage: efficiency and sustainability. Thanks to their ability to maintain the quality of recycled asphalt, they reduce the need for new material production, saving time and resources, and contributing to sustainable management by reducing the overall environmental impact.
Maintenance and conservation of the road surface is crucial for the asphalt life cycle. Regular maintenance activities, such as repairing cracks and applying sealants, can delay asphalt deterioration. However, at some point in the life cycle, maintenance will not be sufficient and the asphalt pavement will require more significant intervention, such as a structural overlap or the remaking of the surface
Efficient asphalt recycling is key to promoting sustainable resource management and reducing waste. With advanced CAMSAMERICA shredder technology, we can get the most out of existing asphalt and help build a more sustainable future for road infrastructure.
