SGS participates in 'Concrete To High-Quality Concrete' project
SGS INTRON is partner in the 'Concrete To High-Quality Concrete' project. In the border region of the Netherlands and Belgium, an installation is being built that will break concrete rubble and separate it into its original components cement stone, sand and gravel (using SLIMBREKER technology).
The cement stone is then dehydrated in a microwave oven into a new binder. For example, new, high-quality concrete can be made from concrete rubble. Specific fiber-reinforced concrete will also be developed to limit material use.
This innovation offers a solution for a growing number of customers who are looking for high quality (concrete) products with the lowest possible environmental impact.
Participants in the 'Concrete to high-quality concrete' project are the Vrije Universiteit Brussels, VITO, MEAM, CBS Beton, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, SCC, SGS INTRON, Concrete Valley Group B.V. and Innovatie Centrum Duurzaam Bouwen.
