At present, construction and demolition waste (C&D) accounts for 30% of all waste material produced in Europe, and this percentage unfortunately increases in other continents.
The disposal of C&D waste at landfills dumps is causing major environmental concern. It is, and must be, considered a resource that can be exploited because of its high recycling and reuse potential. For instance, materials recycled in the demolition process can be reused in road works, pipelines, creation of new homes, yards and industrial buildings.
The process of recycling C&D materials is straight forward, but it requires crushing and sorting, which creates high levels of noise and dust. It also requires transport to plants as opposed to doing this on site.
But since 2001, Italian company MB crusher has been designing and manufacturing attachments that create a solution. Each and every unit made by MB allows for the recovery and recycling of inert waste at low costs and with minimal environmental impact.
Considering that on site there are always excavators, MB Crusher units make it easy to complete the recycling cycle there and then, simplifying the operations of crushing, screening and handling of materials. They are cutting edge pieces of machinery able to contain dust and reduce noise.
It’s also possible to install a magnet kit to gather the iron after crushing and sieving, and also a dust control kit, a patented system that, fitted to the bucket, sprays water on the material and damping down dust.
In just over 16 years MB Crusher has addressed all the issues that companies might face to recycle C&D worldwide, spreading across the entire globe. This is exactly what makes MB Crusher stand out: it allows for one machine on site as opposed to many, as well as reducing time and costs to transport resources to treatment plants and save on environmental damage. All this has also a positive influence on the final cost of the treated material.
Distance from site to the disposal and treatment points became irrelevant, as material can be treated directly on site. Cutting down transport has a strong environmental impact, as well as, facilitating logistics in areas with lots of traffic or access restrictions.
