Product profile: MB Crusher


Demolitions always lead to the creation of waste but when carried out correctly and with the right machinery, it can be easily reused, changed, or repurposed. That’s where the MB Crusher range comes in handy.

Recently, a company in Spain demolished its old shed to then build another one in its place. 

"Our demolition process was much more than breaking down the shed," they say.

"It was like destroying a building made with Legos and then using the same bricks to build a new one. So, we did. What we demolished, we reused for the most part to redo the building. The bulk of the work was done by the MB Crusher’s crusher bucket, with which we crushed the inert materials to reuse them as the basis for the new shed. The job was carried out with a single heavy machine and with a single operator, at the same yard, quickly and with a minimum investment."

Sustainable demolition saves about 80% of the waste from the landfill. Selective demolition—green demolition or deconstruction—might seem more expensive, time-consuming, and more demanding, but in reality, it saves money, time, and tax benefits.

In France, a company managed to recycle almost all the demolition debris of an old house and reuse them to build the new one directly on the same spot.

Materials can be crushed with the use of one machine and single operator

In Turkey, one excavator and one operator recovered and recycled the road demolition material—a mixture of basalt and asphalt—directly on-site and at a very low cost by attaching a BF90.3 crusher bucket to the excavator, which collected the excavated material, and then crushed it and made it available on-site for immediate reuse.

Selective demolition, therefore, is the first step towards a circular economy in which construction will give value to waste. The quality of the result depends on the type of demolition process and the machinery used for the separation and processing of the debris.
The MB Crusher product range is designed and built around these needs, the manufacturers say.

With MB Crusher attachments, it’s possible to maximise the recovery of the waste material

If a site requires different sizes of material, operators can simply adjust the jaws of the crusher bucket or change the panels of the screening bucket directly on-site. And to handle material of different types and sizes, a simple installation of the accessory on the MB-G clamps can be useful.

Manufacturers say that anyone who uses MB machinery can gain value from the construction site waste, turning waste into quality material, converting the raw material into profit.

With MB Crusher attachments, it’s possible to maximise the recovery of the waste material, which has many advantages: reduction of cost of transporting the waste material, reduction of the costs of transfer to landfills or treatment plants, elimination of material repurchase costs, and profits obtained through the reuse or recycling of the material.

The MB Crusher is designed to reduce  and resue waste 

Moreover, if well managed, a sustainable demolition project has a significant impact on the state of abandonment of many urban and industrial areas. Where a dilapidated house or warehouse is demolished and replaced with a new one, there is added value, with benefits for the whole city and for the community that lives nearby.

The goal of recycling 70% of construction waste by 2020, established by the EU is possible when and where appropriate solutions are used correctly.
