Amazing ERO Concrete-Recycling Robot Can Erase Entire Buildings | Inhabitat – Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building

Demolition is a messy business—not only does the process require heavy machinery and produce clouds of dust, but it also results in giant piles of rubble that often head straight for the landfill.

Omer Haciomeroglu, a student at Sweden’s Umeå Institute of Design has designed Ero – a robot that recycles concrete in an energy-efficient manner and separates it from rebar and other debris on the spot. The project won the 2013 International Design Excellence Award IDEA in the Student Designs category.
