Over the next three and a half years CDE shall contribute to this group to develop new technologies and strategies to increase the reuse and recycling of construction & demolition waste material in energy efficient prefabricated elements for building refurbishment and construction.
Speaking about the project, CDE Representative Sean Kerr, Head of Engineering, says,
“To be involved in the first Horizon 2020 funded research project in this area is an exciting prospect and a great opportunity to make significant advancements in reducing the environmental impact of construction and demolition activities.”
“CDE are a key member of the consortium and through our competence and experience in this area we aim to provide innovative strategies and processes for construction & demolition waste recycling to produce recycled products for new and high value applications - taking construction & demolition waste recycling to the next level!”
Having delivered a high volume of turnkey Construction and Demolition waste wet processing recycling projects throughout UK, Europe, Scandinavia, South America and India, CDE bring a wealth of experience.
CDE have been working in the construction & demolition waste recycling sector for over 14 years, and have developed technology that ensures the production of the highest value recycled sand and aggregates. The company also has the highest number of wet processing C&D waste processing projects delivered by and single supplier in the world.
Adapting to unique customer needs, these projects process between 80 and 300 tonnes per hour each and combined divert more than six million tons of C&D waste from landfill each year. CDE also delivered the world’s largest wet processing C&D waste recycling project in Norway which processes 300 tonnes per hour.
About the Project
Project RE4 is focused on the theme - "Reuse and Recycling of CDW (Construction and Demolition waste) materials and structures in energy efficient prefabricated elements for building refurbishment and construction.", funded by the European Commission under the Programme for research and innovation H2020, contract n. 723,583. The project is led by CETMA an Italian based research and development organization.
