Excursion HDB Recycling GmbH
On 13 June, we visited HDB Recycling GmbH in Hünxe to look at the new HDB R-Gestein processing plant (http://r-gestein.de/). The innovative plant for building rubble and soil processing is designed to completely process difficult mineral waste that is particularly rich in impurities and prepare it for reuse. The aim is to substitute primary raw materials with recycled aggregates of the highest quality, which can be reused in particular to produce resource-saving concrete.
There was a very interesting exchange about the substitution of primary raw materials by high-quality secondary raw materials: about the input materials and products of different cycles in civil engineering, road construction and track construction, about opportunities, regulations, and requirements. Afterwards, we were able to visit the entire plant with its individual processing steps and products.
Our thanks go to Frank Tielkes and Martin Krausewitz from HDB Recycling GmbH and Maximilian Mundt from the CDE Group for the interesting insights into practice!
