As the construction sector continues to cope with the availability and cost of raw materials, CDE demonstrated the potential of construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste to address the challenges facing the sector. It showcased its advanced wet processing solutions for waste recycling applications, an area where company currently helps divert over 20 million tons of waste from landfill sites each year. It introduced its new range of equipment engineered for the waste recycling industry and showcased latest projects featuring some of the most advanced process engineering technologies.
The company has a strong focus on CD&E waste recycling with an ambition to contribute towards a zero-waste world. It has reinforced its technical and process engineering expertise as well as its pioneering projects and innovative products with its leading AggMax logwasher and EvoWash sand washing and classification solutions.
Said Eunan Kelly, CDE’s Head of Business Development for North West Europe, “In the current economic and social climate, with materials costs rising, resources depleting, and regulations calling for the adoption of sustainable solutions, we should look to the technology of today to produce the sustainable construction materials of tomorrow; how CDE’s waste recycling solutions in their trademark blue can support the industry to transform CD&E waste into certified, in-spec sand and aggregates.”
Earlier this year, a package of European Green Deal proposals was presented with a view to make sustainable products the norm within the EU internal market. The revised Construction Products Regulation (CPR) emphasises the value of construction to the EU, as a key employer and economic contributor. It also highlights the adverse impact the sector has on the environment by generating about 30% of the EU’s annual waste and contributing significantly to its domestic carbon footprint and emissions.
