Railway Ballast Recycling

CDE’s wet processing solutions recycles railway ballast to divert it from landfill and produce new revenue streams.

Railway Ballast Waste Feed Material

Engineered for Treating Railway Ballast

Railway ballast that has lost its geotechnical properties and is no longer able to fully support the rail track or provide adequate drainage has to be renewed. However, rather than sending the old ballast to landfill, much of this spent material can be turned into valuable recycled products by an effective washing and screening process. 

During both new railway projects and upgrading of existing railway infrastructure, the recycling of in-situ railway ballast will allow you to:

  • Reduce project costs – recycling operations are typically located closer to market
  • Produce recycled railway ballast suitable for reinstatement on your railway project
  • Reduce pressure on natural reserves by recycling existing railway ballast for re-use

Your railway ballast recycling plant can also be built to facilitate the processing of other material such as construction and demolition waste or natural sand & gravel and crushed rock material.
