Two demonstration events in Germany are being organised by materials washing specialist CDE – one near Cologne in April and the other in Stuttgart during June.
The Cologne event will be hosted at a site operated by Joseph Bohnen – the Swistall Quarry – where CDE equipment is being used to process sand and gravel. The plant includes the M2500 mobile washing plant, AggMax portable logwasher and an AquaCycle thickener which is said to facilitate the recycling of 90% of the water used in the washing plant.
The demonstration events at Swistall Quarry will take place on 21 and 22 April.
The CDE business development manager for Germany, Paul Larkin, said, “The modular nature of our equipment is proving very popular.
“It is increasingly the case that operators are looking for equipment with a small overall footprint, that is quick to set up and can be operated efficiently in relation to both the power required and the water volumes needed.”
The other demonstration event will be on the outskirts of Stuttgart in June, taking place at a site operated by Feess Erdbau in the Kircheim Recycling Park.
A CDE plant for the recycling of construction, demolition and excavation waste has been operating there for the last 18 months.
Additional events are being planned for Europe, as well as Brazil, Australia, the US and India.
