Albuquerque Asphalt, Inc. requests a modification to their air quality permit in Application #3291-M2


The facility consists of a 400-ton-per-hour (tph)  hot mix asphalt plant (HMA) and a 200-tph recycled asphalt (RAP)/ concrete crushing plant. The proposed modification will not increase the hourly and annual emissions rates. The applicant proposes to modify the following:

  • Increase the HMA daily throughput without increasing the hourly and annual production rates;
  • Remove the co-located Complete Concrete and Excavation permitted under Permit #1838-RV3;
  • Include additional pollution control equipment that has been installed on the exit of the drum mixer and asphalt silo loading which reduces the air emissions released into the atmosphere. The control equipment consists of a recirculation system that captures the asphalt fumes and other air pollutants, and introduces them back into the drum dryer to be reburned;
  • Calculate the air pollutant emissions for the asphalt mix exiting the asphalt storage silos based on the storage silo heater temperature;
  • Identify that the permitted upaved haul roads are now paved for all the haul truck traffic;
  • Reduce the hours of operation for the HMA plant to daylight hours only during the months of December and January; and
  • Add an Astec 3600 Prosizer screening/ crushing plant that will be powered by line power instead of diesel.
