As resource-efficient construction becomes ever more prevalent, the use of recycled building materials is becoming increasingly important in the construction industry. The Austrian Recycling Building Materials Regulation (Recycling Baustoffverordnung or RBV) has created the framework conditions for this.
The Himberg building material recycling plant operated by our affiliate RCH Recycling Center Himberg has been processing between 350,000 and 400,000 tonnes of construction waste of various origins every year for some time now.
To meet the growing demand, PORR Umwelttechnik has now set up a stationary construction waste recycling plant in Styria as well. The new plant in Graz-Pirka is designed for an output of 150t/h. High-quality recycled products are produced from mineral construction waste by crushing, sorting, classifying and wet processing. The plant in Pirka processes a total of 180,000 tonnes of construction waste per year. The recycled products are then reused. With the construction of this recycling plant, PORR Umwelttechnik has taken a step towards sustainability and environmental protection in Styria – and a step towards the future.
