Transport savings are also a benefit which should not be underestimated in terms of the environment or from a cost perspective. Some primary raw materials, such as stone chipping and gravel, are transported from quarries sometimes hundreds of kilometres from the Netherlands. These stone and gravel quarries often make a major impact on the landscape. The total recycling process for concrete and mineral waste consumes less energy than is necessary for extracting, crushing, processing and transporting new granulate, such as stone chippings and gravel, for the Asphalt and concrete industry.

No more C&DW or TAG going to dumps
Recycling mineral construction and demolition waste and tar Asphalt prevents further damage to natural raw materials and reduces waste dumping to a minimum. Approximately 30% of the waste volume of an average town consists of mineral construction and demelition waste - even up to 50% in terms of weight! This, from the point of view of damage to the environment and the landscape, dumping rubble at dumps is undesirable. Recycling mineral construction and demolition waste and Asphalt is therefore a welcome alternative because, thanks to BRC's careful production methods, it is possible to produce granulates which, in terms of dimensions, shape and properties, are on a par with primary raw materials.
