Recycling moves from Rugeley to Rome
Midlands-based Digbits have gone global with the sale of five of their concrete crushing machines to Italian demolition, excavation and recycling machinery distributors Rammit. The Italian firm has initially secured two Bavtrak 009 micro crushers, two Bavtrak 025 mini crushers and one BAV3 alligator crusher from the UK manufacturer.
Established in 1980, Rammit specialize in bringing the latest eco-friendly technology to the construction industry. The Rome-based company says it expects to import at least 20 more of the concrete crushers as builders and contractors across Italy become more aware of the need to address on-site recycling in line with the European Union’s Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS).
Rammit showcased the mini concrete crushing machines at Samoter, Italy’s largest earthmoving machinery exhibition, which took place in Verona in March. Both the Bavtrak 009 and 025 were demonstrated at the show and displayed on the stand.
The 2.95-tonne Bavtrak 025 is the latest mini unit to be developed by Digbits. Using patented ‘alligator crusher’ technology to process concrete, rubble and reinforcing wire, the machine is said to be capable of transforming heavy waste into variable grades of reusable hardcore on a wide variety of demolition sites.
The smaller Bavtrak 009 is a sub-1-tonne micro crusher suitable for domestic and light industrial sites. Designed to fit through small and narrow spaces, it is able to reduce and recycle any hard mineral-based material, such as brick, stone or concrete, into reusable aggregate.
