Company to showcase latest solutions at Ireland’s construction and quarry machinery show
CDE have announced their plans for the forthcoming CQMS 2023 exhibition (21–22 April) at Molloy’s Quarry in Tullamore, Co. Offaly, where they will be showcasing their latest waste-recycling solutions and technology, as well as demonstrating the sustainability benefits of the equipment.
The show, which coincides with Ireland’s ‘Earth Overshoot Day’ on 21 April, will also see CDE highlighting opportunities to improve plant operations through upgrades to existing assets which, in turn, will improve environmental performance, such as lower energy consumption, higher rates of recovery, and the ability to produce higher-value specialist products.
Visitors to the CDE stand will be able to see the latest generation CDE EvoWash, the global standard in sand classification and dewatering. Engineered for in-spec sands, the plant ensures the most efficient removal of unwanted fines and delivers a washed sand product which is ready for market straight from the belt.
The technology was designed, built, and developed for the Irish market over 30 years ago and is the foundation upon which CDE’s global success has been built. The EvoWash sand washing plant has played a key role in CDE’s recent impetus in Ireland, which has resulted in installations throughout the country, including for McKeon Sand & Gravel in Galway, Northstone Materials in Tyrone, Skipway Waste Management & Recycling in Belfast, and Roadstone and Keohane Readymix in Cork.
Garry Stewart, business development manager for CDE, commented: ‘We are really looking forward to the CQMS show this year. Ireland continues to be an important market for us and we want to help our customers old and new to utilize the latest CDE equipment to help them grow their business. It is fitting we have the EvoWash on the stand as it will show our customers how CDE has developed over the past 30 years.’
The introduction of end-of-waste status for recovered waste materials in Ireland will allow construction and demolition waste to be diverted from landfill and subsequently transformed into valuable resources for the construction sector.
Ireland generated 8.2 million tonnes of construction and demolition (C&D) waste in 2020 of which 84% were soil and stone waste materials. In 2020, most of the C&D waste undergoing final treatment in Ireland was recovered by backfilling (82%), while 10% was disposed of, and only 8% was reported to be recycled.
As well as aggregate/sand washing equipment, CDE will also demonstrate SmartTech, a suite of technological solutions designed to support operators, managers and owners, by providing real-time, in-depth data from their wash plants, allowing for easy remote health monitoring and parts replacement, thus maximizing throughput, uptime, and return on investment.
Mr Stewart said: ‘We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand at the CQMS show and showcasing the latest efficiencies CDE can offer their businesses. We are looking forward to sharing our success stories in both natural and recycled applications, and helping our Irish customers reach their goals in 2023 and beyond.’
