Uralkali has launched a project of recycling old concrete slabs into crushed stone

OOO CMT “Berezniki shaft construction administration”, a subsidiary of Uralkali, acquired a mobile crushing plant to process large concrete slabs into crushed stone.

The introduction of this technology will reduce the burden on solid domestic waste landfills and will allow reuse of materials that remain after capital repairs of buildings and structures. The resulting crushed stone can be applied for upfilling temporary roads, dams and other waterworks and for temporary construction sites.

The crushing plant is used in combination with an excavator and a front loader. To maintain the equipment four workers are required. Capacity of the crushing plant varies from 100 to 300 cubic meters of crushed stone per hour. With the help of hydraulic shears large slabs are broken into pieces of up to 600 mm, and then prepared blocks are loaded into the hopper by an excavator. The output is crushed stone, while the specially positioned magnet above the conveyor belt separates the iron core.

Stanislav Seleznev, director of health and safety, industrial safety and environmental protection of OJSC Uralkali,

Acquisition of the crushing plant is a milestone event for the company, including from the point of view of environmental protection. Today our production facilities have accumulated about 30,000 tons of concrete slabs that need to be disposed of. The crushing plant will solve this problem and will significantly reduce the negative impact on the environment.
