Technology: Soil stabilization

An innovative technology has conquered the globe

Soil stabilizers convert ground of insufficient bearing capacity into soil that is highly suitable for placing and compacting. Added lime improves the existing soil, while added cement strengthens it. Our soil stabilizers master a wide range of different applications in soil improvement and soil strengthening, such as the construction of roads, parking lots, industrial facilities, airports, harbour facilities or track beds. They can also be used for various earthmoving operations, such as the construction of embankments, slopes and backfills.

The key benefits of environmentally friendly soil stabilizers

The technology makes use of existing materials, requiring only small quantities of additives or binding agents to be added. The reclaimed, bound and unbound road construction materials are fully reused. Fewer truck transports having a negative impact on the environment are required in comparison with conventional soil exchange. In addition, the fast-paced method minimizes space requirements and environmentally harmful disruptions to traffic. To put it briefly: our environmentally friendly method is convincing a steadily increasing number of customers in all parts of the world.

Soil stabilization

  • shortens construction times
  • is a resource-efficient process
  • dispenses with the need to create stockpiles
  • minimizes environmentally harmful disruptions to traffic
  • reduces the number of truck transports to the construction site
  • reduces binder requirements
  • significantly reduces emission and in particular CO2 levels
The environment-friendly alternative.
