MB to show special line of products dedicated to recycling at Ecomondo trade fair

The management of the waste generated by construction and demolition has become an important issue -- a subject of debate and often, of dispute.

Construction debris, for example, can be processed by MB Crusher machinery and transformed into material ready for re-use on the site itself, or sold for other applications.
