Reducing the Environmental Impact of Surface Restoration

Go Green with Gravel Doctor®

With the ongoing awareness of the need to “go green”, more businesses are doing their part to reduce, reuse and recycle. Gravel Doctor® subscribes to the same principles of green technology by reducing the environmental impact of surface restoration.

Recycling Reduces Environmental Impact

Consider this scenario: a 450 horsepower dump truck takes 1.5 hours to complete a round-trip delivery of a load of gravel to a homeowner’s driveway. In total the truck uses approximately 675 horsepower to accomplish the service. To complete a one-hour surface restoration to repair the driveway, Gravel Doctor® uses approximately 32 to 35 horsepower. Based on this scenario Gravel Doctor® used just 5% of the power required just to deliver the stone.

Now consider the energy requirements it takes to acquire that new stone from its original location, most likely from a remote rural location:

  • Clearing of trees……………………………………..500 horsepower
  • Drilling of rock………………………………………350 horsepower
  • Blasting to reduce rock size for crusher……………350 horsepower
  • Loading crushers and conveying 5 times…….……..3500 horsepower
  • Transporting rock to shipping dock……..………..500 horsepower
  • Shipping………………………………….……..……1000 horsepower
  • Stockpiling……………………………………..……500 horsepower
  • Loading……………………………………….……..500 horsepower
  • Final delivery….……………………………………..650 horsepower

A New Load of Rock Delivered to your Driveway would Ultimately Require a Total of 7700 Horsepower!

Gravel Doctor® requires 0.0045% of that total to complete your surface restoration by recycling existing gravel!
