Harsco Environmental has re-launched asphalt company SteelPhalt with unique solutions for roadbuilding challenges.
Through sustainable products that deliver high skid resistance and durability, SteelPhalt makes asphalt designed to reduce the carbon footprint of road-laying by 40 per cent. The asphalt aims to deliver durable roads for a more sustainable world.
“We don’t quarry the Earth – instead, Harsco Environmental is increasingly focused on carbon-conscious eco products such as SteelPhalt,” said Martin Gray, managing director of SteelPhalt.
“Our people, and their passion for making a difference, keep us determined to make a world of difference by dealing with the issues of today to help solve the problems of tomorrow.”
Two new SteelPhalt plants
The announcement from Harsco Environmental follows SteelPhalt’s continued expansion in support of sustainable roadbuilding. The company recently announced the opening of two new asphalt plants for the first time in 60 years. The new plants, located in Cardiff, Wales, and an additional plant at the existing Rotherham, England, manufacture sustainable asphalt products using 95 per cent recycled aggregates.
With plans to open several facilities over the next three years outside of the United Kingdom, the additional plants will offer Harsco another resource for handling slag from its steel mill customers, while also responding to the ever-increasing demand to be more sustainable.
