Concrete takes up the bulk transport of building materials in urban environments. And it is often left behind as rubble when structures are demolished. By recycling concrete this impact can be decreased.
The company develops a new concrete recycling technology that is low-cost. Recycling the concrete through a new and advanced dry recovery technology reduces the use of water and energy and it decreases transport through urban areas. With this methodology of concrete recycling, C2CA Technology separates materials purely mechanically and in the moist state. Prior drying or wet screening is no longer necessary. This simplifies the process of recycling and it avoids problems with dust or sludge.
C2CA Technology uses kinetic energy to break the bonds that are formed by moisture and fine particles and can classify materials almost independent of their moisture content. Because of this separation, the aggregate is concentrated into a coarse aggregate product and a fine fraction, which includes the cement paste and contaminants such as wood, plastics and foams.
