Hot Mix Asphalt Plant Established in Qazvin

A hot mix asphalt production plant has been established in Qazvin Province’s Alamut region, Managing Director of Qazvin Roads and Urban Development Organization Masoud Haqlotfi said.

The plant, with a capacity to produce 150 tons of asphalt per hour, has been established by Kandovan Pars Company, the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development reported on its website. According to Haqlotfi, the company is in contract with the organization to renovate roads in eastern and western parts of Alamut. The official noted that the region is a mountainous and attractive travel destination and requires frequent road maintenance. According to Chairman of Iran Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization Davoud Keshavarzian, Iran’s asphalt production exceeds domestic demand by more than 115 million tons. “We need close to 25 million tons of asphalt per year for road maintenance. The municipalities use a further 10 million tons. This is while 900 asphalt producers in Iran churn out more than 150 million tons every year,” he was quoted as saying on the sidelines of the Ninth International Exhibition of Bitumen, Asphalt, Insulation and Related Machinery, aka BAIEX 2018, held in Tehran last month.
