Recycled Concrete Production
Profit Potential £10,800 Per Day
What is Recycled Concrete Production and how can you take advantage of it?
Concrete can be recycled and reused in many ways. The best method often depends on the size and shape of the concrete to be recycled. Reusing concrete is a good way to reduce construction costs while providing some benefits to the environment.
Recycled concrete not only stays out of the landfill, it also replaces other materials, such as gravel, that must also be mined and transported for use.
Uses for Old Recycled Concrete
Recycled concrete can be used in many of the same ways as new materials, like gravel, paving materials, and aggregates.
- Manufacturing concrete lego blocks
- Manufacturing concrete building blocks with an egg layer
- Paving for walkways, driveways, and other outdoor hard surfaces
- The base for new asphalt paving
- Bed foundation material for trenches containing underground utility lines
- Aggregate for mixing new concrete
- Crushed recycled concrete can replace some of the virgin (new) aggregate used in ready-mix concrete
- Recycling concrete helps reduce construction waste and extend the life of landfills as well as saving builders disposal or tipping fees
- It also reduces transportation costs because concrete can often be recycled in areas near the demolition or construction site
- If contractors are seeking LEED Green Building certification, they can receive points for using recycled concrete
Recycled Concrete Production Batching Plant
The F2200 and the M2200
The Fibo F2200 and M2200 Concrete Batching Plants are ideal to make recycled concrete.
100% Utilisation and Profit
The F2200 is a four bin mobile concrete batching plant with a 45 m3/hr output.
The F2200 is very flexible in use allowing you to maximise its utilisation and profitability.
With a margin of £30 m3 being the difference between the selling cost and input costs for recycled concrete, the F2200 can produce 360m3 a day with a £30 margin this is £10,800 per day at full capacity.
The actual profit margin is determined by the recycled concrete mix.
25% Utilisation and Profit
At 24% utilisation the F2200 can produce 20,000 m3 per year with a margin of £30 m3 this is £600,000 and for a competitive margin of £20 it becomes £400,000
50% Utilisation and Profit
At 50% utilisation the F2200 can produce 40,000 m3 per year with a margin of £30 m3 this is £1,200,000 and for a competitive margin of £20 it becomes £800,000
75% Utilisation and Profit
At 75% utilisation the F2200 can produce 60,000 m3 per year with a margin of £30 m3 this is £1,800,000 and for a competitive margin of £20 becomes £1,200,000
The F2200 comes with four bins, this makes it ideal for recycling concrete mixes. Two bins can be used for normal sand and stone and two bins can be used for recycled concrete materials.
We have a concrete technologist and consultant who can give you advice on material suitability for concrete production and who can design the mixes for you.
The F2200 can make up to twenty different concrete mixes with the press of a button. No calibration is required. It is a plug and go machine that can be set up within two hours to full production when moving to other sites.
The F2200 is built on a standard chassis. The M2200 is the mobile version that has the same design but is built on a joint triple-axle bogie trailer with a turntable front axle. The mobility gives the plant a lot of flexibility. The M2200 is ideal for recycled concrete production as you can take it to processing yards rather than bringing the materials to the M2200 machine.
It can be taken to other recycling yards to recycle materials into concrete products such as concrete lego blocks. It can also be hired out to contractors if not being used for any reason as it produces high-quality concrete. The flexibility allows you to work the plant to the highest utilisation.
The dosing accuracy of an F2200 is +- 3% for standard machines and +-1% for our pre-weighing machines.
The dosing accuracy is very important because it means you can produce concrete mixes to BS 8500 the concrete design code for all major construction projects within the UK.
