Recycled building materials now make a huge contribution to saving resources and avoiding waste. Recycled building materials enjoy a high level of acceptance, which is reflected in a recycling rate of over 90 % for mineral building and demolition waste in Germany. As a result, recycled products are being handled more and more, alongside traditional building materials. They have grown to become a genuine alternative. To guarantee consistently high quality, good recycling has to start right at the building site.
The re-use of recycled building materials depends greatly on access to reliable separating and sorting processes when throughput volumes are high.
VDMA special show: a dust-free future starts with us
A further important aspect to recycling is highlighted by the VDMA in a special show at POWTECH, in hall 2 at the exhibition venue. The special show deals specifically with the question of how the necessary limit values can be observed, and the appropriate measures and solutions that are available for dust separation – including for the building materials and recycling industry.
The companies exhibiting solutions for drying and maintaining air quality at POWTECH cover the entire value chain: from manufacturing filter systems and devices to ventilators, dryers and complete plant solutions. Their technologies contribute to high occupational safety and environmental standards in industrial firms and trades. Air and dust removal technology as a branch of industry is constantly developing innovative technical solutions to maintain legal requirements.
It offers a broad range of opportunities to separate dust, smoke, aerosols and gases, in line with the many different fields of application, from waste processing to the pulp industry.
Experience many machines “live” at the exhibition
More than 300 of the approximately 900 exhibitors at POWTECH will display products especially for the building and non-metallic mineral and recycling industries. Many of them will present their systems at the exhibition, both live and in demonstration mode. Please visit www.powtech.de/en for a current list of exhibitors and additional information on the event.
