ATP’s fleet is powered by clean burning Biodiesel fuel blend. Biodiesel fuel provides a significant reduction of the types of pollutants that contribute to smog and global warming. It is the only alternative fuel approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has passed every Health-Effects Test of the Clean Air Act and meets the requirements of the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
ATP utilizes Caterpillar ACERT with EGR technology that provides plenty of power while minimizing particulate matter, NOX and Greenhouse Gases. Equipped with the latest technology diesel engines, the Caterpillar ACERT and EGR pavers are US EPA Tier 3 compliant.
ATP uses Caterpillar clean smokeless electric screeds that eliminate burner smoke, gets rid of the need for open flame diesel burners and has the ability to accurately control temperature. All ATP’s screeds have an eco-friendly wash-down system that utilizes organic based biodegradable solvents eliminating ground pollution.
WMA uses recent technological advances that reduce the temperature needed to produce and compact asphalt for use on roadways. It offers the potential to:
WMA is produced at temperatures that are 30° to 100ºF lower than typical HMA. Due to the lower required temperature, there is a significant reduction in fuel consumption when compared to the energy needed to produce traditional HMA. WMA production lowers the viscosity of the asphalt binder, which slows cooling rates and reduces aging. This results in better compaction, the ability to haul the mix for longer distances, and improved pavement durability. Furthermore, emissions are reduced both at the batch plants and around the paving sites due to the lower temperature at which the mixes are produced.
ATP also incorporates a high percentage of RAP (reclaimed asphalt pavement) in our Warm Mix Asphalt product, above the 10 to 15 percent typically used in asphalt mixes. Utilizing a high percentage of RAP in our pavement is highly beneficial to our clients seeking green construction practices.
For clients that prefer a more traditional product, ATP also provides conventional Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA). Partnering with ATP makes the process of laying HMA more environmentally friendly as we utilize California Air Resource Board compliant trucks and paving machinery.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
To earn LEED® certification, a building project must meet certain pre-requisites and performance benchmarks (“credits”) within each category. Projects are awarded Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum certification depending on the number of credits they achieve.
Partnering with ATP for your asphalt pavement needs will provide you with the opportunity to attain a variety of LEED® Credits. The use of porous asphalt pavements and open-graded surfacing may earn credits for Sustainable Sites. The ability to recycle asphalt pavement, the use of asphalt with high percentages of RAP, and the fact that asphalt is produced locally, make asphalt eligible for a large number of Materials and Resources credits. Finally, Warm Mix Asphalt offers several advantages which may receive credit under Innovation and Design. When all these factors are considered, asphalt pavements can contribute more LEED® credits than other pavement type.
