C&D Recycling News
Zero waste programs are being implemented or considered for implementation across North America. These optional programs have the laudable goal of reducing or even eliminating the amount of waste going to landfills. But part of these programs’ requirements is that, besides no material going to landfill, nothing is supposed to be incinerated in waste-to-energy facilities. This would include C&D biomass. The C&D recycling industry disagrees with this requirement.

The mobile impact crushing plant, also known as the tracked impact crusher or recycling impactor, is recognizable mainly due to the fact that these crushers are mounted on a tracked undercarriage. Overall range of capacity for mobile impact crushers is roughly about 100 to 500 tons per hour. Today’s mobile impact crushers are especially ideal for smaller-scale recycling operations, for on-site recycling, and for tight-space urban and roadside applications. These units are transportable by trailer, simply driven off at the location of material that needs to be processed, and go to work very quickly. With their capability to produce accurately-sized, cubical-shaped end-product, mobile impact crushers work well as stand-alone plants, or they can add significant productivity to any operation, working in tandem with a jaw crusher or screen plant.
