Substitute building materials are used in many ways, eg. unbound in road, road and traffic surface construction as well as in earthworks. Substitute building materials can be recycled on the one hand from mineral building waste, such as soils and rubble, or from industrial by-products, such as electric furnace slag, slags and ashes from waste incineration, foundry sands, etc., to conserve natural resources.
One prerequisite is that the substitute building materials are subject to quality control and come from quality-controlled companies. The focus here is on the structural suitability of the replacement building materials in relation to the performance of the products or requirements for their compaction and stability.
Environmental protection for soil and groundwater also defines ecological minimum requirements for quality assessment in accordance with the requirements of soil protection law. In this regard, an environmental suitability is required. However, the appropriate tools for this are missing in order to be able to make a site-specific decision in each case so that recycled construction materials have an improved chance of being used in free competition.
ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY AS A RESULT OF EMISSION LIMIT ANALYSIS
WE provide this, so far missing, linking the construction and environmental properties and the data of the site with the impact on the environment. In this way, we provide proof that the use of selected substitute building materials does not endanger the protected goods soil and groundwater in the long term.
WE carry out the site-specific proof of emission safety already in the planning phase of the procurement. In this way, we contribute to greater acceptance and willingness to use replacement building materials in construction measures and to reduce environmental barriers. Thus, the previously exploited recycling options for substitute building materials can be secured and strengthened in the future as well as expanded.
BENEFITS OF EMISSION LIMIT ANALYSIS
The advantage is that we always carry out the verification of products and locations. We link the minimum requirements for the replacement building materials with the site data. In this way, we can ensure that substitute building materials are used according to their properties and are not used for subordinate purposes. And you can deliver excavated soil and mineral waste to high-quality recycling and tap new areas of application and recycling. In addition, you incur high costs for complex treatment technology and complex technical solutions.
WE PROVIDE THE PROOF OF EMISSION SECURITY
Together, we can contribute to improved resource efficiency and safeguard regional waste management security.
Classic recycling and sales channels for replacement building materials are:
- Floors for recultivation measures
- Recycling in landfill construction
- Installation as road building materials for superstructure, antifreeze layer, gravel base course
- Antifreeze body under industrial buildings
- Production of temporary construction roads
- Dams, visual and noise barriers
- Soil replacement measures, u. a. to improve the load-bearing capacity of soils
- Replenishment of working areas or backfilling in pits, fractures and opencast mines
