Today is World Environment Day!
A 2018 independent research report explored the environmental impact of geopolymer injection when compared to traditional techniques for ground stabilisation.
Geobear is the original provider of geopolymer injection and we are committed to our “Zero Harm” policy of protecting the environment.
We commissioned experts in sustainability to analyze the environmental impact of our polymer injection when compared to traditional methods.
The analysis was conducted by AAe Environmental Consultants and London environmental consulting firm, KLH Sustainability Ltd., based on a case study documenting work completed for the Oxfordshire Care Home in the UK.
The consulting firms analyzed a wide variety of sustainability concerns including:
An independent tunneling specialist supplied the quantities and measurements of materials required for both the Geobear polymer stabilisation and traditional stabilisation techniques. Once the materials were determined, the environmental experts could calculate the total impact of materials.
Our ground stabilisation system demonstrated a range of sustainability benefits over conventional grout stabilisation.
Due to the high efficiency of the geopolymer (between 500 and 700%), Geobear’s method required far less material than the traditional method, resulting in a lower carbon footprint, water footprint, HGV movement, waste generation, and acidification potential.
In addition, because of Geobear’s reduced installation programme, we also had a lower site environmental impact, with reduced noise, dust, and water pollution potential.
