Recycle Your Aggregate Onsite With A Portable Plant

Having a portable plant built to recycle concrete and asphalt aggregates is becoming more common as industry standards on energy consumption tighten. It’s also more cost-effective to crush concrete and asphalt on-site versus loading and hauling the resources from your construction area or quarry. At Carminex, we have the experience necessary to mount any portable impactor to a custom built plant for effective mobile aggregate recycling.

Lower Your Energy Consumption

The days of trucking used concrete to landfills are over. Recycling concrete for future projects is now the norm. Instead of loading and hauling your aggregate away to a recycling centre, which increases fuel consumption and pollution levels, we can create an electric, portable impactor plant. This system reduces emissions and operational costs, while creating a reusable concrete or asphalt aggregate.

Difficulties In Recycling Aggregate

Recycling concrete or asphalt can only be achieved if all of the impurities are removed. There cannot be any metal or steel such as rebar left in the feed. Our plants are built with powerful filtering magnets onboard, to rid the construction material of contaminants before crushing. If large metal pieces find their way into the impactor, it could become damaged. Carminex’s portable impactor plants make sure this doesn’t happen.

Finding parts for your mobile plant can also be a challenge should a piece of equipment onboard need maintenance. Carminex has Hewitt Robins™ parts and equipment for our portable plants in stock to limit any equipment downtime that may occur.

Sorting your recycled concrete or asphalt after processing is another difficulty posed to portable plants. With Carminex, you won’t need to purchase any other extra conveyors or screens; we build them right into your mobile plant. It’s an all-in-one mobile solution.

Creating Your Portable Solution

We’ve been building mobile solutions for aggregate companies for decades. We have the parts, equipment, and experience necessary to build you a safe and functional piece of equipment. Our portable plants can use Sepro, OEM, or any customer-supplied screening or crushing equipment. They are easy to maintain, quick to setup and teardown, making frequent moves between yards quick.

How Aggregate Equipment Improves Quebec’s Growing Mining Industry

Large Quarry

The right equipment can be the difference between hitting your targets and wasting time and resources. Carminex has been providing aggregate equipment solutions to mining and quarry operations around the world for over 25 years As the mining industry rises in Quebec, we are proud to be supplying more equipment closer to home.

Quebec’s Mineral Supply

Quebec is home to the most diversified natural resources in all of Canada, including 15 metals and 13 minerals. This includes rare metals such as lithium, gold, nickel, niobium, titanium dioxide, cobalt, and platinum. The province is also Canada’s biggest producer of zinc and iron concentrate and its second largest producer of gold.

Technology has driven the demand for lithium, nickel, and cobalt up as these are key metals in creating everything from phone batteries to electric vehicles. It is predicted that the number of electric vehicles on the road will hit 130 million globally by the year 2030 – a massive increase from 3.7 million in 2017. Since the essential metals to our current technological needs can all be found in Quebec, it’s easy to see why the province is becoming a popular spot to set up new mining operations.
Quebec is also responsible for one-third of Canada’s annual aggregate production including limestone, granite, sandstone and marble. The crushed stone is mainly used by the construction industry for asphalt and concrete aggregate.

Government Incentives

Quebec’s government is very open to mining exploration. Currently, only 5% of the province’s vast area has exploration rights assigned, leaving great opportunities for finding new deposits.

There are a number of tax incentives for companies that engage in mining exploration as well, creating a welcoming environment for new mining operations. The combined tax rate for corporations is 26.8%, one of the lowest in North America.

Get The Most Out Of Your Mine

A study from the Fraser Institute found that Quebec is ranked 6th worldwide when it comes to mining attractiveness and it’s easy to see why. Valuable mineral deposits, a favourable business environment, and quality aggregate equipment suppliers can all be found in the province.
