Heidelberg Materials cold mix recycling plant

Investment made in mobile cold recycling plant

We have invested in a mobile cold recycling mixing plant, demonstrating our commitment to conserve natural materials, promote the circular economy and decarbonise our products.

The batching plant can use both reclaimed and primary aggregate to produce cold mix materials, which provide a lower carbon solution for road construction and maintenance projects.

The Wirtgen KMA 240i mobile plant has a large mixing capacity (240 tonnes per hour) and can process base materials including recycled construction materials, asphalt planings and primary aggregate. It enables us to use technologies such as foamed bitumen, emulsion, and cementitious and biogenic binders to produce a range of cold mix materials.

Ian Price, Contracting Managing Director, said: “Our investment in this new mobile plant allows us to complement our existing range of sustainable solutions with the option of cold mix products, saving energy and associated CO2 emissions.

“It provides a cost-effective solution for road construction and maintenance projects, allowing recycling of 100 per cent of worn-out road surfaces, which can be recycled back into new materials, reducing the need for primary aggregate.”
