Posillico Materials Ribbon Cutting

Jun 19, 2013 | News and Awards

On June 19, 2013, Posillico Materials, LLC unveilled its new rail siding and materials transfer depot. A ribbon cutting ceremony took place to showcase this and other energy saving and carbon reduction measures in phase one of this major capital project, in conjunction with the Town of Babylon Industrial Development Association.
The project completion enables most of the materials required for asphalt production to be shipped via rail rather than truck. The new rail system and improved plant layout reduces fugitive dust and also eliminates 5,000 truck trips from local streets and highways annually. These changes result in reduced net fuel consumption and less CO2 emissions.
