Developing state of the art technology to drive down carbon emissions

Throughout 2016, Tarmac have implemented a program of converting asphalt plants from less carbon efficient liquid fuels to modern LPG systems.

Flogas developed a custom built LPG plant to deliver a seamless transition to a smarter, cleaner burning fuel, the first of its kind in the UK. These new plants use a liquid LPG pumped system, incorporating fuel burners, to provide a total solution. The flexibility of the system enables switching to alternative fuels, as market dynamics and fuel sources develop further in the future.

In 2016, Dolyhir, Trowse, Cauldon and Stancombe asphalt plants have been successfully converted, with more in the pipeline. This programme has reduced carbon emissions by over 3,000 tonnes a year, making a significant impact on Tarmac’s overall carbon reduction targets.
