How Keystone Asphalt LLC is Paving the Way for the Future of the Asphalt Industry

Asphalt is one of the most widely used materials for road construction and maintenance, as well as for other applications such as roofing, waterproofing, and recreation. However, the asphalt industry is facing some challenges, such as environmental concerns, rising costs, and changing customer demands. That is why at Keystone Asphalt LLC, we are committed to adopting forward-thinking strategies that will help us deliver high-quality asphalt services while also reducing our environmental impact, saving costs, and meeting customer expectations.

Our Forward-Thinking Strategies

Here are some of the strategies that we have implemented or are planning to implement in the near future:

  • Using recycled asphalt: Asphalt is 100% recyclable, which means that it can be reused for new pavement projects without compromising its quality or performance. Recycling asphalt not only saves natural resources and reduces waste, but also lowers the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions associated with asphalt production. According to the National Asphalt Pavement Association, the asphalt industry reclaimed about 97 million tons of asphalt pavement in 2019, saving nearly 60 million cubic yards of landfill space. At Keystone Asphalt LLC, we are proud to be part of this recycling effort, as we use recycled asphalt for many of our paving projects, such as parking lots, driveways, and roads.
  • Using additives and modifiers: Asphalt additives and modifiers are substances that are added to asphalt to improve its properties and performance. For example, some additives and modifiers can enhance the durability, strength, elasticity, and resistance of asphalt, while others can lower the production and paving temperatures, thus reducing the energy consumption and emissions. Some of the additives and modifiers that we use at Keystone Asphalt LLC include styrene-butadiene-styrene, crumb rubber, atactic polypropylene, and natural rubber. These additives and modifiers help us to produce asphalt that is suitable for various applications and weather conditions, as well as to extend the lifespan of our asphalt pavements.
  • Using warm mix asphalt: Warm mix asphalt (WMA) is a type of asphalt that is produced and paved at lower temperatures than conventional hot mix asphalt (HMA). WMA can reduce the fuel consumption and emissions associated with asphalt production and paving, as well as improve the working conditions and safety of the workers. WMA can also offer some benefits over HMA, such as better compaction, longer hauling distances, longer paving seasons, and faster opening to traffic. According to the Federal Highway Administration, WMA accounted for 39.1% of the total asphalt tonnage produced in 2019 in the U.S. At Keystone Asphalt LLC, we are planning to increase our use of WMA in the near future, as we believe that it is a more sustainable and cost-effective option for asphalt paving.
