ERO / Concrete Recycling Robot

ERO
ERO

ERO is a Concrete Recycling Robot designed to disassemble concrete structures and allow the materials to be re-used for new pre-fabricated concrete buildings. Current techniques of concrete demolition requires a lot of power crushing, separation and machinery and waste of water in order to prevent dust pollution. ERO uses water jets to crack the concrete surface to disassemble concrete and sucks up the mixed debris. It separates the waste mixture and packages the cleaned material. What was previously waste, turns into labeled packaged asset to be transported to concrete pre-casting stations to be re-molded into new building blocks.
