Heidelberg Materials invests in mobile cold recycling plant

Heidelberg Materials UK has invested in a mobile cold recycling mixing plant,
demonstrating its commitment to conserve natural materials, promote the circular
economy and decarbonise its 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) and can
process base materials, including recycled construction materials, asphalt planings
and primary aggregate. It enables the company 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.”
