In its drive to reduce costs through the electrification of its track-mounted processing units, Keestrack is currently concentrating on hybrid crushing technology. Following teh lauch of its fully hybrid H4 cone crushers and B4e jaw crushers, Keestrack is now introducing the R5e hybrid impact crusher unit, designed to guarantee full capacity at low power consumption costs with the aid of a directly driven 350 t/h crusher and electrical transport and screen components.
Doppstadt's new DW 308 Rhino is the largest in its class, and is built to shred everything that gets in its way. The DW 308 Rhino will process waste from industry, commerce and households, including C&D waste, organic waste and railway sleepers, as well as green waste, logs and roots. An ideal application is for processing in plants with high throughput capacities. This machine reduces material size reliably and prepares material for further use/recovery. Except concrete, steel and iron, the DW 308 Rhino can cope with virtually any kind of material.
Rubble Master was recently part of a demo site clean-up in Newark, NJ. Turning asphalt & concrete into base material on-site.
The only event that focuses on recycling North America's largest material stream is happening Feb. 10-13 in Nashville.

The controversy surrounding China's recent decision to tighten standards for incoming recyclable goods is not seriously affecting the recycling of construction and demolition (C&D) materials, according to the C&D Recycling Association.
The management of the waste generated by construction and demolition has become an important issue -- a subject of debate and often, of dispute. In reality, inert waste is not a problem for worksites. It is and must become a resource. Construction debris, for example, can be processed by MB Crusher machinery and transformed into material ready for re-use on the site itself, or sold for other applications. In this way, companies are no longer compelled to dispose of construction debris at the dump, but can put it back into the work cycle, saving time and earning money.
Approximately twenty years ago, those of us working in the off-road heavy equipment industry regularly witnessed a high amount of failures in machines operating on cement or other hard surfaces. Extended steel rims were used with small, hard, rubber wheels. When these rubber tires chipped and chunked, vibrations and bouncing sent shockwaves into the machine, causing shortened life and expensive repairs, not to mention stress on operators. Drivetrain components (U-joints and articulation joints) in particular often suffered from stress cracks caused by vibrations and a bouncing machine.
Fines in a cogeneration power station create more ash. That was the problem facing Marin Sanitary Service back in 1999 and 2000. Marin, a California-based family-owned company, had installed a complete Jeffrey Radar system in 1987, including hammermill, chain conveyor and vibratory screen, to manage their curbside green waste business as well as the construction-and-demolition (C&D) waste in Marin's Resource Recovery Center.

Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has launched the BHS Value Series, a series of six videos that gives viewers an inside look into the real value-drivers behind a materials recovery facility (MRF) investment. The story is told through dozens of interviews with the people of BHS, Nihot, National Recover Technologies (NRT) and Zero Waste Energy (ZWE). The first chapter, Integration, is available on BHS' website.
McCloskey International has introduced a new highly efficient version of its I44R mobile impact crusher. The I44Rv3 combines the productivity of a 44" impactor with the versatility of a full screening and recirculating system, allowing operators to produce a crushed and screened final product with one machine.
Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) is equipping debris management contractors with horizontal wood grinders to play a central role in cleanup after recent storm damage in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean. CBI is providing more than ten machines for contractors who depend on the durability and high-production rates of CBI products, particularly the 6800BT Horizontal Grinder.
At the MATEXPO in Belgium Keestrack presented the diesel electric B3e jaw crusher, a hybrid variant of its successful model deployed on building sites and recycling. All specific advantages of the track-mounted 30-tonne machine are preserved - budget-conscious operators can now benefit from lower maintenance costs and the opportunities for operating subsequently connected units cost-effectively.
There aren't many recycling companies that can say they were the first in their province to lead the way in advancing various programs for reclamation of what would otherwise be waste. For Halifax C&D Recycling, it's a badge of honour they wear with pride.
