To increase efficiency, the plant incorporates a full water and sludge management system including an AquaCycle A600 thickener which, in combination with the CF8000 centrifuge, ensures 90% of water can be recirculated for immediate reuse in the plant, reducing the need for fresh top up water to a minimum.
David Kinloch, CDE Regional Manager UK & Ireland, said: “I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Brewster Bros to create a construction, demolition and excavation waste recycling plant bespoke to their site and production requirements.
This large-scale facility incorporates the latest CDE technology and will be a flagship project in Scotland. We wish Brewsters every success as they champion the move towards zero waste and embrace the circular economy and look forward to a continued strong partnership in the years to come.”
Due to its Quality Management Systems, Brewster Bros’ is an accredited supplier of Zero Waste Scotland’s Aggregate Quality Protocol Director. Its facility responds to the ever- changing recycling landscape and supports the Scottish Government’s aim of securing 70% recycling of construction and demolition waste by 2020.
The company takes over from an established family-run recycling business, Henry Gillies. Thanks to increased investment, Brewster Bros forecasts an annual turnover of £3m at the plant, which will boost the local economy and provide further job opportunities on top of all 20 job roles retained from the previous owner.
Scott Brewster, Director at Brewster Bros, said: “It’s an exciting day as we officially launch the UK’s largest recycling facility of this type. Our number one aim is to treat and recycle construction and demolition waste as a resource, ensuring zero waste to landfill.
“Through significant investment into state-of-the-art recycling techniques provided by the plant supplier CDE Global, we are looking forward to shaping the future of the recycling industry across Scotland and beyond. This new plant should act as a game-changer for the construction industry, by saving money for our customers and ensuring they can dispose of their construction and demolition waste in a sustainable manner.”
Stephen Boyle, from Zero Waste Scotland, said: “We are delighted to see the addition of this new plant in the central belt to help support the construction trade with its recycling with the aim to reduce the use of landfills. We hope the industry acts on the commitment to become more conscientious when it comes to construction waste and the opening of this new plant is a big step in the right direction.”
All recycled materials from the plant will come with a UKAS accredited quality certification and conform to the requirements for the BREEAM Sustainability Assessment Method for Construction. Jan 2019 - Issue 54
