What is aggregate processing?
When buildings are demolished, bridges are torn down or any industriul building or erection is dismantled, then each of these structures goes through a process of disposal. Machines are used to screen or filter material, stone and concrete and sand is all sectioned off and the left-over aggregates are disposed of. Most aggregates are then taken to a variety of different recycling centres or are re-sold for use in other busilding projects.
