The introduction of the Asphalt Batch Plant in 2011 has provided Hardings Hotmix with the advantage of being able to supply hotmix asphalt efficiently to our own projects, as well being a supplier to other local businesses and councils. The Asphalt Batch Plant is run on liquid natural gas and all operations are computerised.

The Asphalt Batch Plant is capable of producing up to 80 tonnes of hotmix asphalt per hour and has heated storage bins that have the capacity to hold 50 tonnes of hotmix asphalt, which assists in ensuring pick up time for hotmix asphalt can be kept at a minimum. All operations are carried out under strict environmental and energy guidelines, with waste materials recycled back through the Asphalt Batch Plant.
