Sheehan produces 380 miles of recycled concrete blocks in 12 months

In an interesting move in the UK, the Sheehan Group has announced it has produced 380 miles of recycled concrete blocks in the last 12 months.

Sheehan produces concrete blocks by recycling leftover aggregate from demolition and construction sites. Construction waste is recycled at the company’s global advanced recycling plant to produce concrete blocks, recycled aggregate, sand and other construction materials.

The company says the concrete blocks contain a minimum of 75% recycled and secondary aggregates and engineered to meet UK and European technical standards.

Tara Sheehan, finance director at Sheehan, says: “Our circular driven economy approach to recycling C&D waste reduces the volumes going into landfill, creates high quality recycled products and reduces transport emissions.

“We are experiencing an increased demand for concrete blocks thanks to their high-quality performance combined with their sustainability credentials. In the past 12 months we have produced 380 miles of recycled concrete blocks and expect this to increase in 2020. By using recycled concrete blocks in construction projects companies are helping to make a positive difference to the climate emergency,” she adds.

“Quarried aggregates are expensive and have a large carbon footprint to produce,” she continues. “By utilising recycled aggregate, it helps against the environmental impact and creates a product that is great value for money. So much waste can be transformed into useful products which can be used on construction. We are constantly researching more sustainable ways to repurpose waste that can benefit our customers and the environment.”
