Norwegian miner Fana Stein & Gjenvinning (FSG) has commissioned material washing specialist CDE to build a new recycling plant for construction and demolition waste.
Construction of the wash plant will start this autumn and is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
The facility will process a wide range of incoming construction and demolition waste material. It will also treat contaminated soil from road works and excavation at building sites throughout Bergen and the wider Vestland county.
FSG has been operating since 1954 and has a licence for the disposal of contaminated material in 18 underground halls in Stendafjellet with total capacity exceeding 4.5 million m³.
The company disposes of an estimated 250 000 tonnes of contaminated waste per year.
Northern Ireland-based CDE says its solution, delivered in partnership with Nordic Bulk, will allow for a high level of flexibility. This will enable FSG to adapt its production in line with the demands of the construction market.
It will also allow the company to switch between different products.
Latest data shows that the global C&D waste market was worth US$ 32.6 billion (EUR 30.7 billion) in 2021 and analysts at Brainy Insights believe this will grow to US$ 55.5 billion by 2030.
