NTEX: Advocating Environmental Sustainability with Efficient Debris Recycling
The cutting-edge technology allows NTEX to extract metals from waste concrete, crushing and remanufacturing the remaining concrete into Australian standard specifications for Type 1, Type 2, select fill, general fill, and other aggregates for reuse in infrastructure projects.
NTEX’s concrete crushing technology is also completely mobile, enabling crushing, recycling and remanufacturing of concrete and legacy waste in far-off rural and remote transfer stations and communities within the NT region. NTEX’s innovative material tracking system further provides high visibility into the life cycle of the crushed demolition debris for recycling purposes.
We’re focused on demolition and civil construction projects that are environmentally sensitive and strive to get the most positive outcomes for clients
NTEX also performs pre-demolition audits by employing the services of an independent industrial hygienist to identify the presence of contaminants and efficiently plan the recycling, or repurposing of the various waste streams generated by demolition projects.
NTEX’s demolition and recycling capabilities rendered significant efficiencies to the Richardson Park demolition and redevelopment project undertaken by the NT government’s Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics. NTEX used its innovative crushing te from the site that was reused in the stage 2 civil works project back on the same site. It eliminated concrete waste going to landfill, reduced the use of finite resources, decreased hauling needs, diminishing public health and safety risks and the carbon footprint. This resulted in project savings of AU $130,000 and a 98-percent recycling rate.
NTEX is currently researching an industry-standard solution, in collaboration with the University of Melbourne and Agon Environmental, to safely manage harmful chromium-6 particles in waste concrete, contributing to NT EPA guidelines and government regulations. NTEX is also collaborating with renowned environmental scientist Dr. Scott Keeling of Agon Environmental, to determine the feasibility of using the alkaline crushed waste concrete to neutralize the environmentally hazardous acid sulfate soil prevalent in the NT region. With encouraging preliminary trial results, NTEX is looking forward to reaching full trial for developing an innovative, full-fledged solution.
With such promising offerings in the pipeline, NTEX will build further upon its strong reputation for delivering efficient and high-quality demolition and recycling services, with a prime focus on achieving environmental sustainability.
