Secondary aggregates from IBA: Fields of application

Numerous fields of application

Whether in road construction, typical earthworks or landfill construction: from a technical point of view, secondary aggregates such as granova® incinerator bottom ash can be used in many different ways. It is true that the use of substitute building materials is limited in comparison to primary building materials due to corresponding environmental specifications. Local conditions, constructional requirements and the type of execution are further influencing factors that must be considered for every project. However, if the conditions for safe use are met, the combination of primary and secondary construction materials can reduce natural resource consumption significantly.

Road construction: Sustainable and economical

granova® secondary aggregates from IBA for use in roadworks

In addition to financial aspects, the construction and development of traffic infrastructure is increasingly focusing on sustainable construction methods. Because environmental considerations and resource conservation have become important discussion points in planning and implementing road construction measures. more

Earthworks: Solid and long-lasting

Embankments such as noise barriers: Ideal application for secondary aggregates

Dam, backfill or embankment – whether for the purpose of visual or noise protection or stabilisation: In all these construction projects, very large quantities of mineral materials of homogenous quality must be supplied over a longer period of time and in all possible weather conditions. Incinerator bottom ash, with its favourable grading curves, offers an ideal construction alternative. more

Landfill construction: Safe and stable

granova® IBA as secondary landfill site construction material

Landfills are constructed according to the multi-barrier concept. Each individual barrier serves to ensure adequate long-term protection for the environment against adverse effects from waste. In the course of a landfill project, numerous construction measures are being carried out in which granova® can be used as a landfill substitute. more

Concrete and asphalt: granova® in the Netherlands

Incinerator bottom ash aggregates for concrete production and asphalt

In the Netherlands, HEROS Sluiskil B.V., a 100% subsidiary of REMEX Mineralstoff GmbH, already produces granulates from IBA with CE marking and KOMO® certification for use in concrete and asphalt under the brand names granova® combimix and granova® granulate. more
