Siltbuster Group, the UK’s water treatment specialist, has sold its Gritbuster range to the Doppstadt Group after working collaboratively on wet waste separation technology for five years.
Following the sale of its Gritbuster technology to Doppstadt, Siltbuster will concentrate on further developing its core business in providing innovative water treatment solutions, both for hire and sale, on a global scale. Dr Richard Coulton, managing director of Siltbuster, comments: “This is not the end of the relationship as Siltbuster will be continuing to supply technical support and water treatment solutions to Doppstadt whilst allowing both companies to concentrate on what they do best: Siltbuster water treatment and Doppstadt materials recycling.”
The Gritbuster technology acquired by Doppstadt can recover aggregates to a very high standard from a variety of waste streams, including building rubble, mixed construction waste, gully waste and road sweepings. Moving forward, Doppstadt will continue to develop and sell the Gritbuster technology. Sebastian Kemper, managing director of Doppstadt Systemtechnik GmbH, concludes: “By purchasing the Gritbuster technology, we have rounded off our range of innovative cross sector solutions that use water to separate out waste.”
