With MB Crusher’s equipment, construction sites can become a recycling centre

Published 8/7, 2021 at 17:43

Produce your building material, using your heavy equipment, wherever the job site is located. This is the easiest solution for many companies now that procurement is becoming more complex, expensive and takes longer.

It is also the most practical solution when construction sites are located in areas where heavy vehicles find access problematic. For example, in Bulgaria, a company had to demolish a house with limited space. It installed an MB-L160 crusher bucket on a Case backhoe loader, making it quick and easy to load the debris, crush it on site, and obtain quality material that could be reused. 

This logic also applies to companies working on large or small urban redevelopment sites, or those often involved in road works, bridge demolitions, road construction or quarries. Material can be reused to create internal roads, fill holes, and reduce management costs by half. With MB Crusher’s equipment, companies are able to set up an actual recycling centre onsite. This provides them with independence from other suppliers, reduced processing times, elimination of transportation costs and provides ready to use quality material. 

In Nimes, France, a company constructing 745 housing units needed to redevelop an old farm road for inter district service and excavate and create a drainage network for rainwater. In this context, where there was a need to excavate and produce a large amount of inert waste, the company chose MB Crusher’s equipment for recycling all of the material. The MB-S18 screening bucket was used to process fine materials, while the BF80.3 crusher bucket processed the larger rocks. The aggregates obtained were reused immediately by laying them over the drainage network trench, avoiding all logistical and material disposal fees and material purchasing fees. Thierry Bastide, manager of Société Travaux Publics Bastide, the company in charge of the contract, said, “The advantage is that you put back the materials that you have extracted.” 

The advantages don’t stop at reducing transportation fees and the cost of treating or disposing of waste, but extend to material quality. A recent example is when the Santo Spirito bridge in Puglia, Italy, was damaged by a landslide and needed to be demolished. The contracting company used MB’s crusher and screening bucket to crush and reduce the material obtained down to the desired output size. The acquired material comfortably met and exceeded the standards for its reuse to create the road substrate that is needed to reconstruct the bridge.
