Wastage material

Wastage material

How we can utilize wastage materials from Hot Mix Asphalt Plant.

RE: Wastage material

Please explain your terms. Is "wastage' the garbage generated by workers? Aggregate not used? Asphalt not sold? AC spiled on the ground?

Recycle it

RE: Wastage material

Wastage means aggregate wastage. we are having 22-12mm, 12-6mm, 6-3mm, 3-0mm hot bin sizes at the plant. But we always face a problem with the overflow of 6-3 mm from the hot bin. because the consumption of the 6-3mm in the mix is comparatively low. At the same time over size materials also overflows. We tried all possible way to reduce the 6-3 mm in the bin. but not worked. still over flows.

So my question based on this 6-3mm and oversize material wastage.
