The UK Government's WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) initiatives and incentives have made recycled aggregate processing increasingly attractive to those within the construction and demolition industries and have driven demand for modern washing solutions.
Almost all construction and demolition waste is capable of being recycled and reused. The waste is segregated and separated and the recycled material can then be used in a variety of construction applications. WRAP in association with AggRegain have been very active in promoting the various end uses for recycled aggregates. There has been significant research conducted into the performance characteristics of recycled material and the list of possible applications is consistently expanding. This research has driven the growth in demand for recycled materials, which has been of significant benefit to CDE.
"In the last number of years we have installed a large number of aggregate recycling plants throughout the country" explains CDE's General Manager in the UK, Terry Ashby. "A plant installed for the Nick Brookes Group in Cheshire is one of 4 that we have completed since the beginning of the year and there are currently another 3 projects in progress."
The Nick Brookes Group, is one of the most prominent recycling companies in the region and have decades of experience in the waste, recycling and demolition sectors. The new washing plant from CDE was purchased to improve the handling of the construction and demolition waste material that is received at the site.
"We made the decision to install the CDE plant as we wanted to improve the quality of the final products we were able to produce from the construction and demolition waste that we take in" explains Nick. "The decision to run with the CDE plant was made after we visited quite a few of their other recycling installations throughout the country. We were impressed not only with the quality of the plants but with the willingness of their existing clients to offer support for CDE's claims regarding performance."
Over the last 10 years CDE have established a leading position in the supply of aggregate recycling systems in the UK. Their network of plants is continually expanding, as demand for recycled aggregates continues to grow.
"This is an area that we see as offering substantial potential for growth over the next few years" concludes CDE's Sales Director, Enda Ivanoff. "Our systems are widely regarded as best in class as a result of the high quality end products that they have been producing for the last few years."
