Concrete ranks among the most important recycled raw materials. It can be found virtually everywhere, is particularly high in quality and is very strong. This means that it can be reused in an extremely wide variety of ways.
Here are only some of the many opportunities: aggregate in the concrete industry, road substructures, ready-mixed concrete industry, concrete blocks, paving, prefabricated concrete elements and many more.

It needs to be a very special machine if it is not going to overheat in this heat: the RM 70GO! not only manages that easily, it also manages to process large concrete blocks. With the high performance components of the OS70GO! oversize grain separator and the TS3600 high performance screen, waste material
Fast reconstruction following natural disasters
Hurricane Irene left a trail of damage through the United States in August 2011. This called for crushers that are able to process the widest range of materials to clear mineral materials such as riverbed gravel, concrete and asphalt. The advantages of the RM 70GO! and the RM 80 were unbeatable.
Dust and heat: challenging conditions for extraordinary machines
The environmentally friendly RM crushers are the ideal partners for a showcase project like this: the world’s first zero-carbon city is currently under construction in Abu Dhabi. 100,000 m³ of material are processed by the RM 80GO!. The crusher didn’t even need to be modified to meet the strict construction site conditions.
Impact crushers instead of jaw crushers
More performance and quality in recycling production waste is no illusion. A concrete manufacturer replaced their jaw crusher with an RM 60 in combination with an RM VS60 prescreen and RM CS2500 post screen. In addition to higher quality, they brought the company enormous cost savings.
