Green Mix vs. Hot Mix

 

Green Mix Solution   Green Mix
Is produced with 100% recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) and involves a cold mixing process - you can hold it in your hand as soon as it comes out of the KMA central mill. Energy use is a small fraction of the hot mix process and there are no greenhouse emissions.
Hot Mix Solution
  Hot Mix
Conventional hot mix asphalt requires virgin quarried aggregates to be super heated to over 300 degrees Fahrenheit before being coated with a hot asphalt cement. It is a very energy intensive process with significant green house stack emissions.
