ASSETS BUILT ON SOLID EARTH

Critical infrastructures face intensifying damages from natural hazards and extreme weather. Bridges, roads, railroads, dikes and coastal assets are particularly threatened. Without solid ground and stable foundations their structural integrity is at risk.

Rapid urbanization implies that suitable land for development becomes scarce. To support building projects, ground stabilization comes into play to ensure strong foundations. Current stabilization solutions based on cement and petrochemicals are found to pollute natural reserves and groundwater and requiring energy-intensive operations including vibrations and risk of heave and settlements.

A DOUBLE, FUNDAMENTAL CHALLENGE TO THE BUILT & NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

 

OUR SOLUTION

containerised, patented, technology to produce high-quality, environmentally friendly liquid solution, for minimally invasive soil injections.

Ready-to-deploy system for producing carbonate-rich liquid of known quality and stability, ready to mineralize

After injection into soils the solution precipitates strong carbonate links within few hours which improve drastically the properties of the ground.

The containerised system feeds any mainstream pumping or injection system. The liquid is easy to pump and requires minimally intrusive operations, thus potential settlements or heave are avoided.
