Building demolition: waste only?


The benefit of MB Crusher attachments in Green Demolition processes


Little to virtually no waste.
Select the material, treat it as necessary, and then reuse it.

The Story:

  • with a single operating machine;
  • with a single operator​;
  • on site;
  • quick;
  • with a minimal investment​.

The MB Crusher product range is precisely designed and built specifically around these needs.

Recently, a Spanish company demolished its old shed then rebuilt a new one on the same siteRemnants of the demolished shed were reused to rebuild the new shed.

A French company managed to recycle virtually all the demolition debris of an old house and reused the debris to build a new home in the same location, removing all the problems of removal logistics and disposal.

In Turkey, one excavator and one operator recovered and recycled the road demolition material - a mixture of basalt and asphalt - directly on site and at a very low cost.

Demolition is a process made up of various steps, time and cost, which is the basis of a change. And if the demolition is done correctly with the right machinery it can also be cost advantageous for the company. Sufficient to say that sustainable demolition saves about 80% of the waste from the landfill. Selective demolition - green demolition or deconstruction - longer, more expensive and demanding.

But in reality it allows:
- save money;
- save landfill transfer costs​;
- save time;
- tax benefits​.

Selective demolition, therefore, is the first step towards a circular economy in which construction values specified obtained waste.  The quality of the result depends on the demolition process and the machinery used to separate and process the resulting materials.

Anyone who uses MB machinery can gain value from the waste from his construction site, turning waste into quality material, and converting the raw material into profit.

Moreover, if well managed, a sustainable demolition project has a significant impact on the state of abandonment of many urban and industrial areas. Where a dilapidated house or warehouse is demolished and replaced with a new one, there is added value, with benefits for the whole area and for the community that lives nearby.

With MB Crusher crushers, any type of inert material is crushed and can be reused directly on site.

With the MB Crusher attachments, maximize the recovery of the quantity and the quality of waste materials:

  • decrease in the cost of transporting treated material;
  • reduction of transfer costs to landfills or treatment plants;
  • elimination of material repurchase costs;
  • profits obtained through the reuse or recycling of the material​.

The goal of recycling 70% of construction waste by 2020, as the EU has established, is  possible when and where appropriate solutions are used.
