Heidelberg Materials has announced that its North American subsidiary Lehigh Hanson has acquired JEV Recycling, Inc., a concrete and asphalt recycler with a large facility in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
With the addition of the JEV business, Heidelberg Materials strengthens its portfolio of circular materials in the Greater Seattle area best to serve the growing demand for sustainable construction materials.
Lehigh Hanson also recently added a new concrete recycling plant to its Cadman operations in Redmond, Washington. The new facility processes concrete rubble into recycled concrete aggregates. The circular product will be marketed under the brand name Revolve and will be used in ready-mixed concrete and road building. This is a further step towards a circular economy and sustainable construction, which are central elements of the company’s strategy. The focus lies on the life cycle assessment of concrete – including processing demolished concrete and returning it to the construction cycle.
