The plant once commissioned will incorporate high rate of recycling using the Marini proprietary system for RAP with absolute control over RAP properties and emission levels. The plant is scheduled to create some fantastic records for energy efficiency and carbon footprint. Another feature of the plant, which will help the contractor churn profits, is the smart storage solution. The plant has four different loading points, can mix up to four different mixes and load them simultaneously. This feature helps exploit batch-mixing technology to the fullest.
"We are very excited for this project; the plant has over eight feed bins and is the game changer in India. We are looking forward to exploit the seven hot bin available in the plant to produce the finest quality of mix," says an excited Mr. Soundarraj, who heads the project implementation.
"We have installed several plants, even bigger capacities than this one, however the options and features of this plant are simply first of its kind in India," he further states.
MAC incorporates some very Smart designs including a very efficient waste heat recovery system resulting in savings energy requirements for heating. A simple 4 percent saving for the burner due to a 10°C reduction in the energy requirements, translates to around 88,000 ltrs of fuel and subsequent reduction in carbon emissions annually under Indian production conditions. These are the benefits which ensure that mix produced from a Marini plant definitely benefit its customers, he further adds.
This plant is capable of producing performance mixes with multiple liquid additives, ensuring a higher return on investments thanks to the durable roads. It will also supply aiming production of Warm mix and low energy mixes in the future.
He further added that new developments in asphalt production technology deliver phenomenal reduction in the amount of energy used and green house gases emitted during the mix production. As an industry leader in the manufacturing and development of technologies, MARINI is committed to providing profitable production technologies and superior pavement performance for a sustainable future.
