New solutions for construction and demolition wastes

The handling of construction and demolition waste is undergoing change. New legislation and new technology in construction create additional challenges—but also new opportunities. In the VDMA Crushing Zone by VDMA’s Waste Treatment and Recycling Association, you can learn all about the practical processing of construction and demolition materials. Be there when the demonstration area is demolished, concrete is crushed, the reinforcement is sorted out and the prepared mineral waste is processed into a new valuable raw material in state-of-the-art screening and processing plants.

Find out more about the efficiency of demolition and mechanical processing in moderated demonstrations and discuss with experts about optimal solutions.
