Repurpose Aggregates Commissions CDE Waste Recycling Plant

Repurpose Aggregates has also invested in CDE conveyors, an A1500 AquaCycle thickener and a filter press sludge dewatering system that enables recycling of over 95% of process water.

A benefit for the local community

The new factory promises to enable a more sustainable future for the local community as well as the company. After working with CDE to tailor the solution to their needs, the plant is optimized to accept CD&E waste from a variety of sources (including extraction of site fill materials) and produce a range of sand and sand products. recycled aggregates that can be reintroduced into local construction. industry as sustainable alternatives to virgin quarry materials.

The 250 tph recycling plant includes an extensive range of CDE equipment including the R4500 Primary Scalping Screen, M4500 Mobile Wash Plant, AggMax 253R Modular Log Washer, Shear Clean Attrition Cells, the DS60-6 washing and washing equipment, the counter-current classification unit (CFCU200) density and size classification system and the EvoWash sand washing installation.

Repurpose Aggregates has also invested in CDE conveyors, an AquaCycle A1500 thickener and a filter press sludge dewatering system that enables the recycling of over 95% of process water.

R-Series technology delivers a steady, even stream of material to the integrated screen before being sent for further screening, washing and sizing. The M4500 modular sand washing plant integrates feeding, screening, sand and aggregate washing and storage on a single frame.

The pioneering AggMax Log Scrubber incorporates aggressive agglomerate attrition to liberate sands through washing and removal of organics, as well as fines recovery and filtrate removal, while patented ShearClean Attrition Cells technology further improves the process because it consistently provides effective contaminant removal for high quality sand. some products.

The Counter-Current Classification Unit (CFCU200) provides an ideal system for the removal of light contamination from fine material fractions and CDE’s dual-pass EvoWash utilizes modular hydrocyclone technology, allowing for control of stringer cutting points.

Among the materials that the plant will produce are C33 washed concrete sand and fine sands as well as ready-mixed aggregates. Due to its modular design, the plant can be adjusted and therefore the final product output can be adjusted to meet market needs and customer specifications.

The CD&E solution will also allow Repurpose Aggregates to partner with public and private entities to process materials from local construction and infrastructure projects. Over time, these recycling efforts will help establish a full-cycle materials economy, moving the industry and region toward a more sustainable future.

Since commissioning in April 2022, the plant has delivered a number of high-quality recycled materials for the local construction industry. The project marks a step forward for sustainability in the Washington Metropolitan Area (DMV) construction industry.

“We first met CDE at CONEXPO 2020 and were immediately impressed with the company’s expertise and our shared vision to increase sustainability within our industry,” says Miguel Lambert, President of Repurpose Aggregates . “We had heard positive reports from a number of other CDE customers and felt confident that they simply had the best technology to meet our needs and aspirations, both for our business and for the local community. “

The company’s 80-acre campus will support the circular economy by providing a facility for local construction companies to responsibly dispose of CD&E waste and refill their fleet with recycled materials that can be reintroduced into the industry. construction.

“We supply materials that are used in the construction of local housing estates, schools and sports centers,” adds Lambert.

“It has been a great journey working with Repurpose Aggregates on this project which is already having an impact in Maryland. This is one of the largest waste recycling projects in the United States and it is a privilege to delivering it with the team,” says CDE Director Darren Eastwood.
