Reuse

Démex maximizes the reuse of used equipment and materials. What can not be reused is recycled. Our combined reuse and recycling rates reach 95-98%.

Démex always maximizes reuse and its projects meet the criteria of sustainable development and LEED projects.

We first sell used used equipment for proper reuse.

We then decontaminate the metals, if necessary, following which Centrem revalues them for resell.

The remaining demolition waste therefore includes mainly concrete, bricks and terra cotta.

These latter materials are processed in order to meet the specifications of the intended reuse. Our customers typically use them as:

  • foundation backfill;
  • parking sub-foundation backfill;
  • secondary roads foundation.
