All Demolition & Recycling Articles

BUDAPEST, 2nd – 5th JUNE 2005, Hotel Hilton Budapest
Good news for C&D Industries
A recent report on the world's construction industry suggests that good times could be ahead for the sector – good news for the industry's demolition sub-sector.
Costs to soar
The impact of the European Landfill Directive, which is expected to see landfill costs soar over the coming years, will hit some sectors more than others as a number of regional markets are already implementing policies to minimise waste.
Future Fuel?
Could the demolition machines of the future be powered by hydrogen? According to a speaker at the last CECE (The Committee for European Construction Equipment) congress in Europe, the answer is 'yes', and the solution involves traditional engines, rather than fuel cell technology.
At the heart of demolition
Hydraulic excavators have firmly established themselves as the workhorses of the demolition sector over recent years. Constant product development, such as longer reach, more power, and, of course, the ability to be carry a wide range of attachments such as shears and breakers means that a breed of specially designed 'demolition' excavators are available to buyers and users. James Verrinder looks at some of the new products that have come onto the market over the past 12 months and looks forward to some of the machines that will be unveiled at the ConExpo show in Las Vegas in March.
Biggest show in town
In just a few shortweeks the attention of the world's construction and demolition & recycling industries will shift to Las Vegas, USA. Between March 15 and 19, more than 100,000 industry professionals from around the world will descend on the city for the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 show. In this the first of two ConExpo previews, D&Ri reports of just a few of the new products to look out for and outlines some additional show info.
Divine Intervention
This month we feature three quite different demolition reports from three quite different parts of the world. We have a report on demolition robots working in Singapore, an interesting and 'moving' story from Italy, and finally a blasting job carried out in Ireland.
