Energy Solutions for Aggregate Industry & Asphalt Plants
Keeping costs down while complying with environmental legislation

The mining and quarrying sector is like no other

Operators work in some of the most demanding environments – quite literally at the coal face – to produce the asphalt that is used to construct over 95% of the country’s roads.* But the energy-hungry processes used to produce this material for the nation’s paths, pavements, playgrounds and car parks carries a heavy environmental price, emitting almost a million tonnes of harmful CO2 each year.**

Businesses face the challenge of meeting exacting customer demands while at the same time complying with tough environmental legislation like the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD).***

Switching to Calor LPG can help with your sustainability targets, cut your carbon emissions compared to other fossil fuels and keep your operations as efficient as ever.
