Crush Your Carbon Footprint: Powerscreen at Hillhead 2024

Powerscreen® - leading provider of mobile crushing, screening and conveying equipment, will once again exhibit at this year’s Hillhead show in Buxton.

The Hillhead exhibition is the largest of its kind and will take place on 25-27 June 2024 at the Hillhead Quarry in Derbyshire. The Powerscreen team will be based at the familiar coordinates of Stand L6, where they look forward to educating customers on decarbonising their crushing and screening operations.

Commenting on the upcoming exhibition, Sean Loughran, Powerscreen Business Line Director & General Manager said “As our mission towards net zero continues, we are excited to meet with likeminded companies, to discuss how Powerscreen crushing, screening and conveying equipment can help crush their carbon footprint. Our latest partnership with CATAGEN, as part of the UK’s Red Diesel Replacement scheme (RDR) - is a prime example of our commitment to research and innovation in this field.”

Based in Northern Ireland, CATAGEN is a catalyst testing expert who develop new technologies in green hydrogen and e-fuels. Powerscreen and CATAGEN are currently working on a joint project which will deliver a decarbonised end-to-end demonstration of a Powerscreen Premiertrak 450E crusher and Chieftain 1700XE screener, powered by green hydrogen and e-diesel at a working quarry site in Northern Ireland later this year.

In addition to helping companies reduce carbon emissions in crushing and screening operations, Powerscreen will present the ability of its new 1300X cone crusher in the demo area.

“At the Powerscreen World Dealer Conference in Italy last year, we launched our latest jaw crushing technology with the Premiertrak 450 and our next generation impact crushers with the Trakpactor 480 & 480SR. It’s now time to replicate these advances with cones and we are looking forward to showcasing these advancements in the demo area” said Neil Robinson, Powerscreen Product Director.
