CDE commissions its largest UK waste plant yet
By Steve Ducker29 June 2022
CDE, a leading supplier of sand and aggregate wet processing solutions for the waste recycling and natural processing sectors, is to commission its largest waste recycling plant in the United Kingdom for Peel NRE, part of regeneration business Peel L&P.
Peel NRE specialises in renewable energy, waste-to-value projects, water and materials management.
Its investment in a new construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant, designed and engineered by CDE, is the latest step in its commitment to combatting climate change and its impacts.
A new business, NRE Aggregates, will operate the plant to produce high-quality recycled construction products.
With the capacity to produce up to 240,000 t of secondary raw materials a year, the plant will be commissioned at Port Salford in the north west of England, the site of a proposed £138 million (US$ 168 million) tri-modal freight facility and distribution park on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal.
When operational, the waste recycling plant will process C&D waste to produce in-spec recycled sand and aggregate products which will support the sustainable development of Peel L&P projects, including Port Salford and other developments across Greater Manchester.
Investment in the CDE solution represents Peel NRE’s first venture into the wet processing of materials and the next chapter for the new natural resources and energy business.
CDE is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and business development manager Mike Bibby says the project will provide the local area with an asset to strengthen the circular economy.
“Our purpose at CDE is to create our best world, a ton at a time and for Peel L&P it is to create a more prosperous and sustainable future for all.
“To that end, our two companies are both intently focused on building a greener tomorrow, so there is a lot of synergy underlying the partnership.
“This is a transformational project, and when our CDE solution is operational it will support the continued development of a circular economy in the north west and facilitate sustainable construction in Greater Manchester and beyond for many years to come.”
The C&D waste recycling plant is expected to be commissioned later this summer.
Director of development Kieran Tames and other representatives of Peel NRE joined CDE at this year’s Hillhead exhibition in Buxton, United Kingdom, to share insights into the development.
