Appetite for waste solutions ‘stronger than ever’ according to CDE

A recent showcase of wet processing technologies in the USA demonstrates a growing appetite for construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste solutions, says industry specialist CDE.
Following the recent commissioning of a new recycling facility for Repurpose Aggregates in Joppa, Maryland, CDE hosted an open house event attended by more than 80 materials producers and industry representatives from the US, Canada and Latin America.
CDE business development director Darren Eastwood says this shows that appetite for waste recycling solutions is “stronger than ever”.
“With the support of our partners at Repurpose Aggregates we were able welcome guests from right across North and South America, offering them the opportunity to see our waste recycling solutions in action and to witness first-hand the economic and environmental benefits brought about by the technologies on site.
“I believe the strong turnout and its geographic spread is a positive indication of the industry’s willingness to adopt to more sustainable ways of working and one which is also a very lucrative investment.”
Becky Caldwell, executive director of the US Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA), says events of this kind demonstrate the benefits of forward-thinking partnerships.
“At CDRA, we exist to educate the industry about environmentally sound recycling, support innovators and change-makers whose technologies are driving forward the circular economy, and to advocate for materials producers championing the potential of recycled construction materials,” she said.
