A new purpose for ‘’odd’’ materials


What do porcelain bathtubs, foundry slags and general waste have to do with earth-moving equipment? The answer is recycling!

Porcelain bathtubs, foundry slags, and general waste – these may seem like unrelated elements at first glance, but they are just some of the materials that MB Crusher clients have recycled using their diggers.

When it comes to protecting the environment and building a sustainable future, the importance of recycling cannot be overstated

Recycling not only conserves natural resources but also helps reduce landfill waste and minimize carbon emissions.

Surprisingly, this noble cause has found an unlikely connection with the heavy equipment and this is how MB Crusher attachments collaborate with the recovery of waste material, even odd ones, into reusable products.

Porcelain bathtub

Hundreds of faulty porcelain bathtubs are pretty useless, should they go to landfill? Of course not!

Our client specialises in demolitions and recoveries so they reduced them by installing an MB-HDS323 padding bucket on its Hitachi Zaxis 240 excavator, and the broken down impractical bathroom fixtures saved on the number of truck trips to the recovery plant where they will get on the way of their new life.

CAN IT BE RECYCLED? YES, IT CAN! With fewer carbon emissions!

Foundry slag

It is part of the foundry's production process to produce slag, should it be plied up unused? Of course not!

With the synthesised slag and steel casting scrap, the MB-HDS314 padding bucket mounted on an ATLAS 220 W divided the aggregates from the ferrous residues. So that the steel is sold to steel mills, while the aggregate is to companies that deal with road paving or asphalt production.

CAN IT BE RECYCLED? YES, IT CAN! Transforming residue into valuable products!

General waste containers

General waste is a common material but while it is all mixed up it is pretty useless, should it be left to waste? Of course not!

Just a rotating grapple MB-G450 on a 4 tons mini excavator Kubota KX042 and with precision the operator can select through the material, move it about and divide it perfectly by typology.
This way, everything gets to be recycled correctly and each type of waste gets a second life!
