When Colony opened our first asphalt plant in 2008, we made the decision to be at the forefront of the Green initiatives in asphalt production. When you take into account 94% of all hard surface roads in America are paved with asphalt, this decision has the potential to greatly impact the environment. In addition to the advantages of the Double Barrel Green system, asphalt pavement is 100% recyclable.
Colony’s Powhatan Asphalt Plant became the first asphalt plant in Central Virginia to use a Double Barrel Green system. We also installed a Double Barrel Green system on our newest Astec plant in Burkeville, VA.
The Double Barrel Green system benefits are:
- Improved Workability
- No Smoke – No Smell
- Longer Pavement Life
- 14% Less Fuel to Produce
- 14% Higher Production
We are proud to make our asphalt mixes with a cost effective, fuel efficient, eco-friend asphalt mix system.
