Management of hazardous substances—Demolition—Mineral processing

In light of increasingly scarce capacities for landfill and backfilling, there is growing need for innovative solutions for the recycling of mineral waste from construction/demolition measures and of excavated soil. IFAT 2020 will address this need by introducing the new special area “Management of hazardous substances—Demolition and mineral processing—Road construction”.

Recycling begins with a detailed analysis of hazardous substances—even before dismantling or disassembly

After a controlled demolition/selective deconstruction of buildings or the breakup of roads, the recyclable material must be processed as recycled building materials (RC building materials) for precisely fitting applications. Often, soil material needs to be treated as well.

The other main area Sustainability in road construction will demonstrate how the processed material can then be used in a reasonable way.

Here, IFAT covers the entire process chain (see figure):

From the analysis of hazardous substances, demolition and sorting to the treatment of recycling materials and their use in civil engineering and building construction.

By using processed recycling material, the process chain becomes a cycle.

As a highlight, the live demonstration VDMA Crushing Zone will show the demolition and treatment processes as well as the construction procedures.

The “Management of hazardous substances—Demolition—Mineral processing” sector comprises the following:

  • Planning
  • Pre-exploration, investigations, sampling (buildings / soil)
  • Remediation procedures (buildings / soil)
  • Building dismantling and demolition
  • Equipment technology
  • Occupational safety
  • Analysis and laboratory techniques / services
  • Processing of demolition material into recycled building materials
This sector is supported by: GVSS, Deutscher Abbruchverband, VDMA Recyclingtechnik, bvse Bundesverband Sekundärrohstoffe
