Benninghoven reveals recycling innovation

Benninghoven has a rich history of innovation in asphalt plant technology. Speaking at bauma 2013, the German company’s managing director Bernd Benninghoven said the firm had developed and were trialling a new system for recycling. “In order to save valuable resources we have developed a special machine that can handle big lumps of recycling material which then separates it back into its own original structure,” he explained. “This then allows you to add as much recycling as possible which is important. It is basically not a crushing effect, it is a separation effect. This is achieved by a two-line crusher system or granulator.”
The system, said Benninghoven, allows you to include an extremely high content of recycled material in an asphalt plant mix as the recycled material is of a superior quality. “We listened to the demands of customers and have made some developments on it, especially the capacity and separation. The first trials have been very positive,” he added.
