Exhibits will focus on innovative solutions in Europe that are helping to divert waste from landfill
AT this year’s Bauma exhibition in Munich, CDE, a leading global provider of sand and aggregate wet processing solutions for the natural materials processing and waste recycling sectors, will be marking their milestone 30th year in business.
Since their inception in 1992, CDE have successfully delivered more than 2,000 solutions in over 100 countries. Today, they employ more than 500 experts solely focused on wet processing, including over 120 engineers with a combined 1,000+ years of industry experience.
CDE’s 30th anniversary comes as they reveal that their proven solutions have, over the past three decades, facilitated the diversion of more than 100 million tonnes of construction, demolition, and excavation (CD&E) waste from landfill globally.
Among the sustainability champions who have contributed to CDE’s landmark landfill diversion total are Norwegian firm Velde Pukk, who operate the world’s largest wet processing plant for C&D waste, and Swedish firm D.A. Mattsson AB, whose CDE plant is helping to divert almost 100% of incoming C&D waste from landfill.
These Nordic companies join some of the most advanced waste recycling plants designed and engineered by CDE in the DACH region, including that of Switzerland-based WALO AG, whose 200 tonnes/h plant is processing a range of feedstock, including excavation waste and railway ballast.
Alongside these, CDE’s solutions are also transforming the circular economy in France, through partnerships with waste recycling pioneers Sodextra SA, who now recover 70% of incoming inert CD&E waste with their 135 tonnes/h plant, and Pélichet Albert SA, whose CDE plant is diverting up to 200,000 tonnes of inert C&D waste from landfill sites every year.
At Bauma, CDE will be focusing on their innovations in Europe’s waste-recycling sector. Commenting on the company’s history with the trade fair, CDE’s head of business development for Northern and Western Europe, Eunan Kelly, said: ‘CDE’s legacy of engineering excellence in the wet processing industry and Bauma are intertwined.
‘The show has played a hugely important role in the CDE story. It has hosted many of the biggest product launches over our 30-year history, innovations that continue to guide the company on its mission to create a more sustainable future; to build our best world, a tonne at a time.
‘Today, CDE technology powers many of the most innovative waste recycling operations in Europe and contributes in a major way to supporting customers and regions in successfully meeting sustainability targets, all with a view to achieving a zero-waste society.
‘This will be our focus at Bauma 2022 as we demonstrate how we are supporting the sector in rising to the challenge and tackling the waste burden.’
