The Simplest Hydrocarbon: Using LNG to Fuel Asphalt Production

Featured Article May 01 2020

Our industry has proactively invested time and money to make asphalt one of the world’s most sustainable materials, with breakthroughs ranging from recycling and reuse, to reductions in greenhouse emissions, to improving stormwater runoff. Today, that ecomindedness continues, as asphalt industry leaders aim to provide even more and better solutions, including the switch from diesel, propane, recycled fuel oil, or waste oil to liquefied natural gas (LNG) to fuel their stationary and temporary asphalt production facilities. LNG is a more sustainable and more cost-effective fuel than those traditionally used to produce asphalt.
