State Asphalts NSW is committed to managing its environmental footprint through the principles of ecological sustainability, policy improvement and pollution prevention.

By striving to balance the economic and operational requirements with social responsibilities, State Asphalts NSW aims to minimise the impact on the environment and surrounding communities that its' operations may incur. This approach calls for innovative solutions; promoting environmental sustainability in every aspect of the business.


State Asphalts NSW aims to uphold the following environmental practices in each of its operations;


  • Minimise dust emissions and maintain air quality
  • Prevent contamination of water, soil and groundwater from potentially hazardous waste
  • Ensure efficient combustion
  • Reduce emissions generated in the manufacture process.
  • Increased proportion of recycled products 


State Asphalts NSW is committed to working in an environmental sustainable manner and educating the communities in which we operate on the sustainable nature of asphalt. Asphalt pavements are 100% reusable and recycled in the form of RAP in certain asphalt mix designs. In addition, asphalt pavements are able to use waste and byproducts from other industries, subsequently reducing environmental impacts. Instead of going into landfills, materials such as rubber from used tyres, glass, ceramics and blast furnace slag can all be put to use in asphalt pavements.


Asphalt requires less energy to produce and production generates less material waste than other paving materials, and its' production emits fewer greenhouse gases than concrete pavement. The binder used to produce asphalt pavements is a result of fossil fuels that were never burned and put to energy uses, such as diesel fuel or gasoline, Thus, the inherent CO2 is never released into the atmosphere. Furthermore, not only are asphalt pavements an effective means of sequestering carbon, the production of liquid asphalt products from the heaviest fraction of a barrel of oil is much less energy intensive than trying to convert it to a fuel for energy use. Beyond these benefits, State Asphalts NSW has endeavored to utilise warm-mix asphalt technologies, which allows asphalt to be produced and placed at lower temperatures, saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions


State Asphalts NSW aspires to be a leader in the industry; not only achieving compliance, but also changing the model of operations through education and support of environmental sustainability.
