Engineering Insights from CDE

CDE wet processing plant

CDE announce free and open-to-all global virtual symposium for the wet processing industry

CDE have announced plans to host a virtual trade event for the materials wet processing industry across the globe. Continuing their Engineering Insights education series, the virtual event will take place from 14–15 October.

Across the two days, CDE experts, together with a host of guests and industry figures, will facilitate a series of dynamic, educational and informative presentations and panel discussions covering multiple sectors, including sand and aggregates, construction and demolition waste recycling, industrial sands, mining and wastewater.

Hosted live, the discussions will be facilitated across multiple different rooms and stages, each aligned to international time zones, with some dedicated languages seminars for greater accessibility.

Interactive Q&As will conclude each session and breakaway networking chat rooms will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the insights and connect with leading industry experts.

Exploring the topic of construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste recycling, CDE’s head of business development for Reco, Eunan Kelly, will lead discussions about the role of CD&E waste material in the sustainable city agenda, as well as a technical review of the CD&E waste recycling process, an appraisal of the end-use markets, and a review of legislation for the use of CD&E recycled materials.
For quarry operators, the two-day event will feature discussions about the benefits of wet processing compared with crushing, how to maximize profitability through water and energy savings in washing operations, manufactured sands, and unlocking hidden value in quarry by-products, among others.

Experts in the industrial sands sector will discuss the topics of sustainable silica sand operations, the demand and challenges in the industrial sands market, contaminants removal, opportunities for materials processors to diversify into industrial sands, sustainable frac sand processing, and more.

Tony Convery, managing director of CDE, said: ‘In these unique and challenging times there are many restrictions that have prevented CDE, our customers, and others in materials processing from coming together at industry events to discuss the prevalent issues of the day and latest technological advances.

‘This is why we’re excited to announce our two-day Engineering Insights programme as a way to bring the insights to the industry and our customers, wherever they are based.

‘Over the course of the two days, we’ll be hosting live discussions in multiple languages and facilitated simultaneously across different time zones so we can engage with our customers and attendees in real time to look at challenges in the market, processing innovations and applications, and indeed the opportunities that lie ahead.’

Registrations is free, but places will be limited for some roundtable and seminar sessions. For more information about the event or to register, visit:
