NCC Green Asphalt - our method

NCC Green Asphalt is our method of producing asphalt with a lower climate footprint, while maintaining high quality.

At NCC we continuously work to develop, improve and optimize within three crucial areas in asphalt production that cuts greenhouse gases radically, we call it NCC Green Asphalt

Cutting the use of fossil fuels

We choose energy types that minimize the carbon footprint
and the use of fossil fuels in asphalt production. We increasingly
use wood pellets, tall oil pitch and green electricity to
replace oil. For example, wood pellets help eliminate almost
all CO2 emissions at our asphalt plants

Higher energy efficiency

You may be familiar with warm mix asphalt (WMA/LTA).
We have developed our own way to reduce energy in asphalt production, a patented foaming technique that lets us produce asphalt at a lower temperature, hence enabling lower energy consumption.

Saving resources

NCC Green Asphalt is leading the way in applying
reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) to asphalt production.
Since more than ten years, we are systematically developing
and increasing the use of RAP in our asphalt plants. In addition
to RAP, our asphalt may include other recycled stone
materials and recycled cement.
