AT ASTEC MoBILE SCREEnS, we talk t materialprducers daily abut relatively the same thig—makigbetter prducts ad elimiatig waste, while reducigperatig csts. We are prud t say that we have beehelpig the aggregate idustry ver the past 32 years.Sice ur cmpay became a divisi (w 14 i ttal) Astec Idustries i 1997, we have played a similar rlei the recyclig idustry. The applicatis ur screeigplats ace vary csiderably, but they all share thesame ivative techlgy. This ivati allws AstecMbile Screes t er a screeig sluti that helps urcustmers perrm better ad saer, ad achieve maximumretur  their ivestmet.It is very evidet that recyclig has becme mre prevaleti ur busiess tday. oe just has t lk at hw we areutilizig materials tday versus i years past. Whether it isscrap metal, site cleaup, cmpst, wd waste, rgshigles, r recycled asphalt pavemet r ccrete, tday’smarketplace is lkig t recycle every bit  materialpssible. The prducer r ctractr that takes advatage recyclig mre material will be the wier i tday’scmpetitive market.oe majr example is the mst recycled prduct i thewrld, recycled asphalt pavemet (RAP). Ht-mix asphaltprducers, like mst material prducers, d themselveschalleged t be cmpetitive ad prtable i a marketthat has see virgi igrediets ctiue t rise i cst,while udig ctiues t decrease each year relative tthese csts. Virgi igrediets, such as il, have rise rm$200 per t t $500 per t i the last ve years, whilecurret aggregate pricig rages rm $10 t $25 per tdepedig  where yu perate.

The yu culd have a ½ ich by¼ ich ad ¼ ich by zer, just like virgi igrediets, butwith a lm  asphalt already preset.I reality, ay recycled prduct is wrth what it replaces,ad its value ca be ehaced i the material is treatedlike virgi material. I yu thik abut it, 30,000 ts RAP equal 70 six-thusad-gall trasprt trailers  liquidasphalt ad 28,200 ts  virgi aggregates. T realize theull value  RAP, prducers must start by takig the milledRAP, prcessig (resize) it like virgi aggregate igrediets,ad the sedig it thrugh the asphalt acility where itis mixed with virgi materials t make a uirm prduct.Ultimately, prducers are helpig the evirmet byutilizig as much recycled material i mixes while reducigcstly virgi igrediets.As we ctiue t perate i this develpig “gree wrld”marketplace, we eed t cstatly review hw t best useall material surces.
