Concrete Waste – How DAMIFO Solve The Problem
How to convert demolition concrete into products and make a margin.
About DAMIFO and Concrete Waste
DAMIFO offers practical and innovative solutions for the construction and recycling industries.
The business has a solid background in professional recycling and the use of recycled materials for innovative solutions.
The increasing focus on the environment dominates, both the social and political levels.
Slowly but surely, it is becoming clear to companies around the world that this is an area that needs to be taken seriously.
Three factors can help companies make the decision to use new or used materials.
Regional variations, even within Denmark, can be decisive for how and which solution is most optimal.
- The availability and thus the cost of using natural and new building materials
- The availability and cost of landfills in the form of taxes and direct costs.
- Transportation costs
The Concrete Waste Problem
When the business was being set up, DAMIFO needed 2,500 interlocking concrete blocks to make factory walls and material bays.
They purchased a number of block moulds, and a Fibo Intercon concrete batching plant to make the blocks from recycled aggregates.
At the end of the production process of making the 2,500 blocks, the plan was to sell the moulds and batching plant.
However, management saw another opportunity to add more margin to the business.
The Business Opportunity
The business found an opportunity to sell the interlocking blocks to other recycling and contractors. The demand grew and has now become another add-on business.
DAMIFO get a gate fee for concrete waste, brick waste and ceramic sanitary ware. The materials are crushed and sorted into concrete aggregates to make concrete.
The gate fee and the purchase of the blocks give a reasonable return. So much so that the Fibo Intercon concrete plant is in operation every day making concrete blocks for sale.
DAMIFO are planning to purchase more moulds to meet demand.
