History cold recycling

A ground-breaking technology on the path to global success

From the modified road milling machine to the highly specialized cold recycling train – that’s a brief way of summing up the impressive history of development of the cold recycling technology at WIRTGEN. From the beginnings – in the mid-1980s – we were fascinated by the huge potential offered by cold recycling, and since then we have played a key role as the acknowledged technology leader in this field. So it goes without saying that we have paved our path to success with numerous innovative milestones.

Our comprehensive service and support during construction projects has always been of central importance, and was a contributing factor to the breakthrough of this method.
