CDE hosted an open house on Sept. 7 at customer Calgary Aggregate Recycling (CAR) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, to showcase the plant’s new 250-tph C&D waste and contaminated soils recycling wash plant.
Rock Products Managing Editor Josephine Patterson was among nearly 100 attendees of the event.
CAR commissioned the wash plant – its first-ever – in April. The plant consists of an R4500 primary feeding and scalping screen with the M4500 modular sand washing plant and AggMax 253R scrubbing and classification system. It also features CDE’s EvoWash, a modular sand washing system; an AquaCycle thickener water management system; and a filter press sludge dewatering system.
Enabled by the CDE washing technology, CAR now has the capacity to process an additional 600,000 tonnes of waste materials to produce more than 1.25 million tonnes of construction sand and aggregate produces annually, including 0-1 mm fine and 0-4 mm coarse sands; 4-10 mm undersize, 10-20 mm midsize, and 20-40 mm, 40-100 mm and >100 mm oversize aggregate.
“It’s a partnership that is pioneering better ways of managing resources in Canada, driving forward the agenda for change, and building a strong case for the adoption of recycled materials in the construction industry by highlighting the immense potential of C&D waste streams,” said CDE Business Development Manager Adrian Convery.
It is expected that the plant, which is the largest CDE has commissioned in Canada, will help to reduce carbon emissions in Alberta by an estimated 22,567 tonnes annually.
