Ajax Paving in North Venice, FL, won the Existing Plant Award, being recognized for supporting the ecological development and operation of its asphalt plants, as well as for its forward-thinking approach when concerning care of the environment and its surrounding natural resources.

Payne & Dolan Inc, of Waukesha, WI, earned the New Plant Award, for its commitment to minimizing its ecological footprint at the Control #10 plant in LaGrange, WI. Jim Mertes, Payne & Dolan’s Environmental Manager, discusses the benefits his company has experienced since switching to warm mix production, including a significant reduction in fuel usage, improved compaction, and an extended paving season, which is critically important in the Wisconsin weather.

Staker Parson Companies, based in Ogden, UT, won as Finalist, New Plant. Environmental Advisor Patrick Clark commented on how warm mix has helped the company to achieve a five percent energy reduction due to a decreased need for fuel to heat the asphalt mix, and to increase haul distances by up to three hours.

Congratulations to all these sustainable companies on their Evotherm Trifecta in the NAPA Awards. Keep up the work and thank you for paving the way to such remarkable impacts.
