Materials washing specialist recognized for its product innovations in CD&E waste recycling
CDE Global have been shortlisted for the European Construction Recycling Awards, which are organized by the European Quality Association for Recycling (EQAR).
EQAR includes members from 11 European countries, representing more than 400 companies operating in the recycling sector throughout the continent. The aim of the association is to promote the production of high-quality and quality-controlled recycling materials from mineral waste.
CDE Global have been nominated for an EQAR Award following recent developments of the processing systems they offer for the recycling of construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste. These include a series of product innovations such as the new R2500 primary screening unit utilized as a feed system for the company’s CD&E waste recycling plants.
The new system reduces plant footprint, improves the quality of the washed recycled sand and aggregates and offers a new sludge management system that maximizes the recovery of process water for recirculation to the washing plant and delivers a consistent sludge to the final sludge management process.
‘The ultimate aim of the developments has been to ensure that we are able to extract maximum value from construction, demolition and excavation waste material by maximizing re-use and minimizing waste,’ explained Marc Jennings, CDE programme manager.
Many of these product developments have been demonstrated by CDE on a project completed for Feess Erdbau – a Germany-based family owned business specializing in transportation, civil engineering, demolition and recycling. The bespoke CDE washing plant is located at the recycling operator’s Kircheim site, near Stuttgart.
Walter Feess, managing director of Feess Erdbau, said: ‘Expanding our portfolio of recycled sand and aggregates and offering our customers first-class waste management services has been and will continue to be a very important focus for us. Our investment in this advanced processing technology proves our commitment to improving the quality of materials recycled from construction, demolition and excavation waste.’
Paul Larkin, CDE business development manager in Germany, added: ‘Following successful delivery of the project for Feess Erdbau and the excellent response to the first demonstration event we have continued to promote the capability of our technology across Germany. We are pleased with the response that we have had and the willingness of a broad range of companies to visit the plant and discover the potential that exists to turn construction, demolition and excavation waste into a quality recycled product with a broad range of construction applications.’
CDE will host a demonstration event in Stuttgart on 9 and 10 June - the second demonstration event hosted at the site following an event in September 2014.
