FCB Rhodax® to process concrete wastes


The FCB Rhodax® crusher has been rewarded during Fives’ internal innovation contest for its application to process concrete wastes resulting from demolition/deconstruction industry. Its ability to sort the hydrated cement paste from the aggregates/sand will enable cement producers to reuse it as cement additive, and ready mix producers to make new concrete with recycled aggregates/sand, thus allowing significant CO2 emissions reduction. The view is to make the deconstruction concrete a resource and to recycle 100% of it indefinitely. The other contribution is to use this technology to allow cradle-to-cradle works.
