Wet processing technology open house shows growing desire for CD&E solutions, says CDE
A recent showcase of wet processing technologies in Maryland demonstrates the growing appetite for construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste solutions, says CDE.
Following the recent commissioning of a new recycling facility for Repurpose Aggregates in Joppa, Maryland, CDE hosted an open house event which was attended by over 80 materials producers and industry representatives from across the United States, Canada, and Latin America.
CDE Business Development Director Darren Eastwood says this shows that the appetite for waste recycling solutions is "stronger than ever".
"With the support of our partners at Repurpose Aggregates, we were able to welcome guests from right across North and South America, offering them the opportunity to see our waste recycling solutions in action and to witness first-hand the economic and environmental benefits brought about by the technologies on site," says Eastwood.
"By working alongside us to open their gates, Repurpose Aggregates played a major role in supporting our drive to accelerate the adoption of sustainable technologies in the materials processing industry," continues Eastwood. "I believe the strong turnout and its geographic spread is a positive indication of the industry's willingness to adopt to more sustainable ways of working and one which is also a very lucrative investment."
Becky Caldwell, executive director of the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA), says events of this kind demonstrate the real-world benefits of forward-thinking partnerships.
"At CDRA," says Caldwell, "we exist to educate the industry about environmentally sound recycling, to support innovators and change-makers whose technologies are driving forward the advancement of the circular economy, and to advocate for materials producers whose products are championing the potential of recycled construction materials."
Following the open house, CDE has released information about the next event in its Engineering Insights webinar series. On October 19, it will host a 360-degree virtual site tour of the Repurpose Aggregates 250tph wash plant. CDE will guide viewers through each stage of the process, from the feed material and washing process to the numerous outputs currently being produced.
