The level of demand for the recycled sand and aggregate products from this plant suggests that C&D recycling plants offer a real solution to a diminishing supply of virgin material in the UK.

THE CHALLENGE

An upgrade to the processing capability at Elford quarry to include a modular washing plant from CDE Global has resulted in a significant increase in the value of the products being produced.

JPE Aggregates has operated from Elford since 2005 when they purchased the site from Hanson UK. The business model that JPE Aggregates operate involves purchasing sites coming towards the end of their operating license and processing the materials that remain on site while also focusing on ensuring successful restoration of the site.

An upgrade to the West Coast Mainline only a few miles from Elford quarry provided JPE Aggregates with an outlet for the remaining river terrace gravels following the purchase from Hanson. “We supplied this material as construction fill on the embankment widening project being undertaken by Network Rail” explains John Hale, Technical Director at JPE Aggregates. “The requirements of the project allowed us to supply this material without any processing and allowed us to make significant progress with our plans for restoration at Elford.”

Following completion of the West Coast Mainline upgrade attention turned to recycling material from the project and it was at this point that CDE became involved. “We took a large quantity of material back from the rail project which was waste from the service road that had been constructed under the new embankment to allow for HGV access” says John Hale.

THE SOLUTION

Following completion of the West Coast Mainline upgrade attention turned to recycling material from the project and it was at this point that CDE became involved. “We took a large quantity of material back from the rail project which was waste from the service road that had been constructed under the new embankment to allow for HGV access” says John Hale.

When considering the options for a new washing plant for the waste material, representatives from JPE Aggregates visited a CDE open day event in Ireland. This visit demonstrated how the M2500, AggMax and AquaCycle combination could be used successfully in the processing of waste from the crushing plant operated by Gleeson Quarries.

“We were impressed by the capability of the M2500 and AggMax to produce high quality sand and aggregates from a waste material and immediately saw how the system could be applied at Elford quarry” explains Steven Birch, Managing Director of JPE Aggregates. “We had trialled another washing plant at the Elford site but decided that the CDE plant gave us the best opportunity to maximise both the volume and value of recoverable materials.”

“Many of our customers have commented that the quality of material is extremely pleasing particularly when they see the nature of the material with which we are feeding the plant.”
