Working in projects throughout the remote west of Australia, BGC Asphalt needed a versatile high production mobile asphalt plant. The iNOVA2000 by Ciber from the Wirtgen Group fulfilled its role. Roads & Infrastructure explains.

With residential developments being approved for historically industrial areas, asphalt plant operators are facing new challenges in mitigating complaints and conflicts over emissions.
A new odour management product that suppresses and neutralises odours and emissions in hot asphalt, rather than try to mask them, may prove a game changer for the Australian pavement sector.
Hanson Australia has acquired Alex Fraser Group, a leading provider of recycled construction materials and asphalt in Australia.
