Whatever you demolish, you can use to rebuild. That is what sustainable entrepreneurship is all about. Schotte makes high-quality reuse of demolition and residual materials part of its mission. These materials together form our raw materials bank. And not without results! We are now a leader in this regard in the Netherlands, both specialised and certified.
We already separate released materials at the source. We then process the majority on site or at our recycling location in Rotterdam into secondary raw material or building materials. We keep the entire process in-house and thus guarantee quality.
A world of materials
A world of materials becomes eligible for high-quality reuse. Concrete rubble is given a new lease of life as concrete granulate and a secondary raw material for new concrete. Wood is given a new use as chipboard. Materials such as sand-lime brick, ferrous metals, glass, roof bitumen and PVC are also excellent for reuse.
Our own crushing plant processes concrete and mixed rubble into granulates in various grades, where possible even on site. This helps us save transport costs and reduce CO2 emissions. The granulate can often even be applied on site or in the immediate vicinity.
Towards 100 percent
The limits of high-value reuse have not yet been reached. That is why we are always looking for innovative ways to expand our raw materials bank. To further optimise recycling and to bring new materials back into the construction chain. Our goal is to ultimately reuse 100 percent of all materials released via the raw materials bank.
