Using the counterflow Retroflux Ermont technology, the new-generation RF 200 Neo asphalt plant bought by P2R was erected close to Lyon.
Its main features include a low energy consumption and limited environmental impact, thanks to a lot of innovative processes, such as:
Moreover, the RF 200 Neo provides great flexibility of use in order to meet the needs on site, thanks to peripheral equipment, such as:
It only took 11 weeks to go from plant construction to the first hot-mix asphalt production. The layout around the asphalt plant has been also completely re-designed (bitumen storage, heater, social rooms, etc…). After only 3 months of running, the RF 200 Neo has already produced more than 40,000 tons of hot-mix asphalt.
To highlight some of its characteristics, the RF 200 Neo asphalt plant can produce with a recycling rate up to 50%, with a production range from 110 to 230 T/h and provides great flexibility of use and can meet to all production needs.
This new adventure with P2R confirms a partnership started many years ago: with its RM 160 Marini-Ermont plant, they have produced more than 1,800,000 tons over the last 20 years. Regularly maintained, the RM 160 asphalt plant is going to be transferred to another site and will have a second life.
