United Kingdom-based CDE, a manufacturer of wet processing equipment for the aggregates and related industries, has announced plans to host a virtual trade event Oct. 14-15.

During the two days, CDE says its own staff members, “together with a host of guests and industry figures, will facilitate a series of dynamic, educational and informative presentations and panel discussions covering multiple sectors,” including the wet processing of discarded demolition materials.

“In these unique and challenging times there are many restrictions that have prevented CDE, our customers, and others in materials processing from coming together at industry events to discuss the prevalent issues of the day and latest technological advances,” says Tony Convery, managing director at CDE.

Adds Convery, “Over the course of the two days we'll be hosting live discussions in multiple languages and facilitated simultaneously across different time zones so we can engage with our customers and attendees in real time to look at challenges in the market, processing innovations and applications, and indeed the opportunities that lie ahead.”

Interactive question-and-answer periods will conclude each session, and networking chat rooms “will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the insights and connect with leading industry experts,” according to CDE.

Exploring the topic of construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) materials recycling, Eunan Kelly, CDE’s head of business development for recovery, will lead discussions about the role of recycled CD&E materials in the sustainable city agenda, as well as a technical review of the CD&E recycling process, an appraisal of end-use markets, and a review of legislation for the use of CD&E recycled materials.

Registration is free, says CDE, but participation will be limited for some roundtable and seminar sessions. More information about the event, including how to register, can be found on this web page.
