Asphalt Plants Fact Pack

Asphalt plants release millions of pounds of chemicals to the air during production each year, including many cancer-causing toxic air pollutants such as arsenic, benzene, and cadmium. Other toxic chemicals are released into the air as the asphalt is loaded into trucks and hauled from the plant site, including volatile organic compounds and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). This guidebook addresses these and other concerns raised by asphalt plants.
