CDE commissioned a 250-tph wash plant at Calgary Aggregate Recycling (CAR), and the companies intend to showcase it at an open house later this summer in Alberta, Canada.

The wash plant, which CDE characterizes as its largest construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant in Canada, presents CAR the opportunity to process an additional 600,000 tons of waste material.

“This plant is both the largest we have ever commissioned in Canada, but also our first partnership with CAR, which demonstrates real confidence in our washing technology and recycling process,” says Adrian Convery, business development manager for Canada at CDE, whose company will host the open house in partnership with CAR on Sept. 7. “It’s a partnership that is pioneering better ways of managing resources in Canada, driving forward the agenda for change and building a strong case for the adoption of recycled materials in the construction industry by highlighting the immense potential of C&D waste streams.”

Travis Powell, president of CAR, says his company added the wash plant to disrupt “out-of-date practices” in the construction industry.

“We set out to establish economical and viable solutions to position Alberta as a leader in sustainable and responsible construction,” Powell says. “We started this process by applying for a grant with Emissions Reduction Alberta. It believed in the impact our proposal could have and gave us the start we needed to get to where we are today.”

According to CDE, CAR now has the ability to produce more than 1.25 million tons of construction sand and aggregate products each year with its additional 600,000 tons of processed waste material.

Among the plant’s product outputs are 0- to 1-mm fine and 0- to 4-mm coarse sands, as well as 4- to 10-mm undersize, 10- to 20-mm midsize, plus 20 to 40 mm, 40 to 100 mm and 100-mm plus oversize aggregates.
