Power Chemical Ground Stabilisation

New techniques should be employed in order to continuously improve the efforts of environmental protection.

There are always new techniques being developed to improve efficiency and also reduce the impact on the environment.

It is important to maintain awareness and an open approach to implementing such techniques.

The example below demonstrates how one site reduced the impact on the natural environment:

  • Power chemical ground stabilisation chemical was used to make the arable soil into a haulage road, alleviating the use of crush and even asphalt;
  • Chemicals hardened to a depth of approximately 300mm;
  • The machinery is used to mix the earth/cement powerchem, which is then left to cure;
  • The finished surface sets solid and forms a strong base for a thin layer of crushed stone and tarmac;
  • This reduced the vehicle movements on one particular site from 1000m to approximately 20m;
  • After-works the area could be ploughed, re-seeded and examples in Canada have shown an improved yield from some treated areas.
