Disposing of non-destructive digging (NDD) or hydro excavation waste can incur high disposal costs due to its solid/liquid state and weight.
As regulators tighten transport restrictions off the back of an increasing need for urban recycling solutions, the payload per truck may be reduced.
CDEnviro aim to provide efficient dewatering solutions for NDD waste to reduce landfill disposal costs. Its solutions recover up to 85 per cent of water and sand which would have otherwise been sent to landfill. The recovered sand can be reused or provide an additional source of revenue. The end result leads to greater sustainability, reduced disposal costs, a secure method of processing and less business time and money spent on transportation.
One product designed to deal with this difficult waste is the G:MAX. G:MAX uses vibrating platform screen technology in a dual stage washing and recycling system for any solid/liquid mixture that requires classification or dewatering. It removes the particles that cause wear, efficiently removing grit, thus maximising product yield and minimising waste volumes. The recovered grit can be used to offset virgin resource extraction.
The G:MAX aims to boost efficiency through PU splash guards, rubber spring mounts and the ability to continuously process the incoming waste. Guards maximise material and water retention, resulting in a safer and more efficient site. The technology can also be used with other primary, secondary and tertiary water treatment solutions to reduce any necessary contaminants.
