Ammann: Green Roads for India Initiative Towards Swatch Bharat

The success of Ammann Asphalt-Mixing Plants is driven by innovation, backed by massive investments in R&D for developing sustainable and cost-effective solutions for the road building industry. For instance, the company’s ACC 90 CounterMix asphalt plant is a combination of energy-efficient, minimum carbon footprints, and pollution control designed to meet the stringent pollution norms.

ACC CounterMix
Ghaziabad-based JRD Infratech, an experienced Indian road construction company, turned to Ammann to help it meet the increasingly strict environmental standards. JRD primarily concentrates on roadbuilding and civil projects, but also handles residential, industrial and commercial work. “We are a focused, service-oriented firm that has a lot of experience in construction projects,” said Jitendra Yadav, Director of the company. “Our recognition as a fast growing, dependable organization comes from our strength in traditional construction methods combined with our capability to leverage cutting-edge technologies and delivery systems for residential and commercial projects.”

JRD Infratech recently purchased an Ammann ACC 90 CounterMix Asphalt-Mixing Plant. “It is an environmentally friendly plant that utilizes green technology. It meets the National Green Tribunal (NGT) and Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) guidelines and their stiff pollution norms. In fact, it is the only plant that has met NGT conditions,” said Yadav.

The ACC 90 CounterMix is producing asphalt mix for the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, which connects Noida in Uttar Pradesh – an industrial suburb of Delhi – to the new suburb of Greater Noida. It is also being put to work on other sector roads. Recycled plastic is being used in some of the mixes manufactured for the project. Producing about 600 tons per day, it is a counter flow asphalt drum-mix plant, which has become to be known as a highly productive and environmentally-friendly plant. It combines the simplicity of existing continuous drum-mix plants with the added efficiency achieved through counter flow technology. Lesser energy requirements for heating lead to reduced emissions. It also produces the mix at a lower cost than traditional parallel flow drum-mix plants and can easily incorporate recycled asphalt (RAP) and other additives.

The plant’s green features, particularly its lower emissions and recycling capabilities, were just what JRD wanted. “Tough environmental norms are the biggest challenge we face today,” said Yadav.

Ammann Group`s commitment to technology was a key factor in JRD’s purchase decision. The plant utilizes Ammann’s proprietary recycling technology and is engineered for implementation of future innovations. ”Overall, the ACC 90 CounterMix is a cost-saver. It is fuel efficient as it consumes less energy when compared to other plants. So, we save money on fuel, plant maintenance and parts consumption, plus the plant is reliable and easy to operate. Its installation was fast and straightforward and was completed in about 10 days. What’s more, the Ammann India service team is always ready to support our plant and has a fast response time. The customer service is very supportive and helps to ensure that all maintenance is completed on time,“ he added.

A forum “Initiative Towards Swatch Bharat” was launched by Ammann India along with the Indian Road fraternity to work on major aspects of Sustainable Asphalt Pavement Technologies.
