Company opens state-of-the-art facility to cut carbon emissions by up to 50%
OCL Regeneration have announced the opening of a new recycling centre in Medway’s Hoo Peninsula, dedicated to asphalt, concrete, and other road and construction materials. The state-of-the-art, 3.2-acre facility aims to reprocess and recycle waste generated from highway and pathway construction and redevelopment projects, providing a sustainable solution for new building and road maintenance projects in Kent.
By utilizing treated and recycled outputs, OCL Regeneration say the facility can significantly reduce carbon emissions by up to 50%, making it an eco-friendly choice compared with newly acquired concrete or asphalt.
The facility’s proximity to the Hoo Peninsula, Rochester, the Isle of Grain, and the Lower Thames Crossing is considered important, as all are key areas for redevelopment by Medway Council as it aims to build a prosperous, sustainable future for local communities and businesses.
The new state-of-the-art centre will allow businesses to responsibly dispose of construction materials as well as purchase recycled concrete, asphalt, and aggregates. OCL Regeneration have set ambitious goals for carbon reduction and making a positive impact on the environment.
Stuart Gready, founder and managing director of OCL Regeneration, commented: ‘Medway can take a leadership position in economic terms and the reduction of carbon emissions. With Medway’s aim to achieve net-zero carbon by 2050 and significant reduction by 2030, the door is wide open for sustainable development.
‘OCL Regeneration's recycled materials are the key to efficiency and carbon reduction, and our facility is poised to lead the charge in promoting sustainable construction in highway maintenance and civil engineering.’
