Building rubble and mixed construction waste are too valuable to be sent to landfill. That's why the construction materials experts from the ALBA Group sort waste materials, process them and then sell on the resulting high-quality secondary raw materials. These can be reused for a variety of purposes, including civil engineering and landscape gardening. All of which helps close material recycling loops and conserve natural resources.
Turning waste into new construction materials
From rubble to raw material
Banking on sustainability
One important source of raw materials is building rubble made up of mineral substances, such as concrete, bricks, ceramics, soil and sand. These are recycled into new materials for various uses - from road construction, to soundproof walls, to filling in excavations.
Likewise, mixed construction waste - a mixture of mineral waste and other substances such as wood, glass and metal - yields a wide range of materials that can be sorted, processed and recycled. For example, wood can be extracted for generating heat and power in power plants.
