Device to recycle rubble set for launch
Dubai, October 4, 2010
An Italian firm is set to launch a device that can recycle rubble from building sites, bringing savings for the construction industry while protecting the environment at the same time.
The jaw-action crusher bucket from MB, a pioneer in the recycling, building and earthmoving equipment sectors, when fitted to an excavator, crushes and recycles demolition and construction debris that would normally have to be moved from construction sites and deposited elsewhere.
This cuts out high transport and disposal costs, reduces the volume of construction traffic on the roads, and also produces environmental savings by preventing waste from ending up in landfills, a traditional side effect of construction, a statement said.
Tipped by industry experts to radically change work methods on construction sites, the product will be given a Middle East launch at the Big 5 PMV exhibition, a specialised event for plant, machinery and construction vehicles.
Organised by Streamline Marketing Group, the Big 5 PMV will run from November 22 to 25 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“We were fortunate that we were able to remain unaffected by the economic downturn since the crusher bucket is highly efficient and eliminates many fixed costs for customers,” said Ilaria D’Ambrosio, area manager at MB.
“Now that construction work is picking back up, we are in the advantageous position of being ready and able to present this opportunity for even more companies to save and earn at the same time.”
The crusher bucket will come in four models to fit excavators weighing eight tonnes and upwards, he added.
“As the show attracts visitors from across the globe we hope to meet potential new customers in currently untapped markets,” D’Ambrosio added. – TradeArabia News Service
