FCB Rhodax to process concrete wastes

Published by
World Cement,

The FCB Rhodax® crusher has been rewarded during Fives’ internal innovation contest. The crusher was recognised for its application to the process concrete wastes that result from the demolition and deconstruction industry.

The crusher’s ability to sort the hydrated cement paste from the aggregates will enable cement producers to reuse it as a cement additive, and ready-mixed producers will be able to make new concrete with recycled aggregates/sand, thus allowing significant CO2 emissions reduction.
