Heidelberg Materials invests in mobile cold recycling plant

• Heidelberg Materials UK has invested in a Wirtgen KMA 240i mobile cold recycling mixing plant.


• The batching plant can use both reclaimed and primary aggregate to produce

cold mix materials suitable for road construction and maintenance.


• It can also recycle 100 per cent of worn-out road surfaces back into new

materials.


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.”
