Finally there is an asphalt pavement product that is 100% recycled, comparable in strength to traditional materials, and is environmentally friendly to stand the test of time.
In a letter dated March 30, 2007, Tom Gampler of SMG, the Maryland LEED representative for Building Green, Inc. stated, “Your product will increase demand for a building material that is ‘extracted’ (i.e.: recycled) and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the regional economy and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation.
G.R.R. in 2006 became the first firm in the U.S. to initiate the purchase, installation and operation of a KMA 200 Central Plant for the manufacture and placement of foamed asphalt “Green Mix” by Green Mix, Inc., a regional mid-Atlantic materials recycler and manufacturer.
Principle owner Harold Green stated "Knowing the unique environmental benefits as well as energy efficient and cost competitiveness of Green Mix, we quickly began the process of applying to the Building Green Council in Brattleboro, Vermont to have Green Mix approved as a “Green Product”.
The product therefore has holistic benefits resulting from it's stand alone, first-of-its-kind manufacturing plant that significantly reduces Greenhouse gases. It is simply put, remarkably innovative.
These attributes lend themselves to LEED certification and eligible for LEED credit in the categories of “Material & Resource – MR” and “Innovation & Design – ID” categories.
Since 2006, some 900 jobs across MD/DC/VA have been completed on commercial parking lots and roadways using over 85,000 tons of Green Mix foamed asphalt.
