Recycling Solutions For Crushed Concrete
Demolition projects will often result in large volumes of construction and demolition waste being produced, and one such ‘waste’ by-product from this activity is concrete. The demolition process often includes the demolition of concrete structures including foundations, pavements, and buildings themselves.
The concrete itself will need to be processed to be re-used again, and this can involve crushing equipment to produce crushed concrete. This crushed concrete that has been dry processed will still contain dust and fines and is often considered a low value construction material which will have limited end uses.
Remove Fines & Contaminants in Your Crushed Concrete
The introduction of a CDE wet processing solution can help to wash and remove the dust, fines, and other contaminants which is found in the crushed concrete. This enables operators who process and recycle crushed concrete to produce higher quality aggregate products which have a range of application uses.
The recycled concrete contributes to a circular economy by reducing the volume of concrete that goes to landfill sites.
If you deal with high volumes of concrete and crushed concrete as part of your operations, then considering a wet processing solution and a CDE wash plant can help you unlock new revenue streams in your crushed concrete.
