The commitment of the most responsible companies towards people, society and the environment helps to define their identity and the relationships they establish with the environment and society in which they operate. This commitment is also a civic duty that organizations must carry out according to their resources and possibilities: in line with this vision, CAMS has always been committed to being an innovative company and an engine of change through the production of cutting-edge solutions for the recycling of aggregates, asphalt, rubble and other materials.
In the current context, the focus and action towards sustainability and the reduction of environmental impact are crucial factors and can no longer be postponed. One area that is making great strides towards sustainability is road infrastructure. In particular, the use of recycled asphalt is gaining popularity in America and beyond, as a sustainable and responsible solution for road construction and maintenance.
Recycled asphalt also offers companies significant economic savings. The traditional asphalt production process requires the extraction, transport and processing of materials, all of which involve significant costs. In contrast, recycled asphalt uses existing materials, reducing procurement costs.
The use of recycled asphalt contributes to the reduction of waste destined for disposal. The old road surface can be recycled and reused in the production process of the new asphalt. This reduces the amount of waste destined for landfill disposal and promotes a circular economy.
Contrary to what you might think, recycled asphalt offers performance and quality comparable to traditional asphalt. Advances in technology and manufacturing processes have made it possible to obtain recycled asphalt with similar or even superior characteristics in terms of durability, strength and road safety. Roads made of recycled asphalt are well resistant to wear and weather conditions, maintaining their structural properties for a long time. Recycled asphalt is the most effective solution for the roads of the future. With its environmental, economic and social benefits, the use of this material can contribute to the creation of greener road infrastructure and a more sustainable future.
