The UK-based company says that these facilities are designed to give new life to construction waste and debris.

Valormat and Ecotri are said to be two complementary service offerings that give new life to construction waste and debris.

Valormat is said to feature a network of 160 facilities that can accommodate large volumes of construction waste and debris, sort it and give it new life in the form of recycled aggregates (sand, gravel), which can then be used on new projects.

The Ecotri network consists of 12 professional waste recycling units adapted to the needs of builders and SMEs in the building industry, mainly in urban and peri-urban areas. The company says that Ecotri units are able to accommodate around 15 different types of waste that are systematically weighed, traced and sorted to be recycled on site or sent to appropriate treatment channels.

Colas says that the activity also offers construction companies the opportunity to buy either natural materials or recycled materials, or a combination of both recycled and natural products.
